Viatorian Annual Retreats

 Collection — Multiple Containers
Identifier: US-PV-Pr SE Off-Ret

Scope and Contents

Each Viatorian religious sets aside time each year for contemplation, renewing and focusing his spiritual life.  He usually participates in an annual provincial retreat which is a special time to share Viatorian Community life. The collection holds the materials from these retreats, including correspondence, agenda, handouts, presentations, attendees, etc.  The materials from the early years are sparse; the later years have better documentaion. The collection dates from 1903 -  the present day. Also included are records from the thirty day retreats for the years 1953 and 1961.  Once in the life time of a religious, the men make a thirty day or "long  retreat."
