Sisters between 55 to 70, 32 in all spent quality time in contemplation and prayer from May 23 to 27 at Chandapura, Bangalore. The retreat guide, Sister Bernadine Joseph, RNDM, accompanied the Sisters with inputs on the spirituality of aging to recognize the presence of God in their lives as they age gracefully. She also emphasized the importance of being attuned to the manifestation of God through nature, people and events. It was a time of reassurance for the Sisters to feel affirmed that they have much to contribute to the community, society and the world wherever they are. She also encouraged the Sisters to let the Scripture speak to them and in the process to discover who they are and who is Christ to them.
