This was the inaugural retreat to Moloka’i. The presentations from Father Lane and Father Miguel the first evening of the retreat prepared all pilgrims spiritually and mentally for what everyone was going to encounter. To follow in the footsteps of Sr. Marianne and Fr. Damien on pilgrimage through the tradition of the Order was a powerful experience for all. It was somber yet inspirational to visit the grave of Sr. Marianne and the relics of Fr. Damien.
