Sisters of St. Martha held two Congregation gatherings, both with a focus of deepening and broadening our understanding of what Charism means in general. This gift of the Spirit, specifically what we name as our Congregation Charism, is Gospel Hospitality.
The first gathering was a retreat
held in October 2022, led by Sr. Mary Rowell, CSJ. With the theme Hospitality of the Heart, she invited us to reflect on this gift of the Spirit, in three movements:
This time together provided Sisters an opportunity to pause and reflect, as individuals and as a community, on where the Spirit is leading us, where God is active in our lives. The retreat served as a spiritual foundation for us as we prepared for a Martha Gathering a couple of weekends later in November. Photo: Sr. Mary Rowell, CSJ
