Our April meeting will be held next Sunday, April 23, in the St. Joseph Room of the St. Gertrude Parish
Centet at 2:00 p.m. Fr. Luke Waugh, OSB, will be the guest speaker for this meeting. His topic is
“Humility, a Benedictine Spirituality.” This will be our last chapter meeting until September.
As you know, our chapter is hosting the Ohio Day of Recollection on Saturday, May 20 at the Milford
Spiritual Center, and we hope many of you will be able to be there. Br. Francis Wagner, OSB, will be the
presenter for the day, and the theme is “The Heart of Benedictine Spirituality.”
Our beloved, retiring oblate
director, Fr. Meinrad Brune, will also be present, along with our new oblate director Janis Dopp. This will
give us all a chance to thank Fr. Meinrad for all he has done for us over the many years he has been our
director, and to also welcome our new director Janis Dopp.
Registration forms were emailed to those on our email list a couple of weeks ago and copies will be available
at the meeting. They have also been mailed to those not on our email list. The cost of the retreat is $30, and
the deadline for reservations is May 3. A continental breakfast and lunch is included. Please contact Pat
Dorn (513-791-0988) with any questions or for additional information.
