The 2010 Returned Missioner Retreat was held in Allenspark, Colorado at
Camp St. Malo from May 14-17. Returned Missioners gathered from across the world, some
traveling from as far as the Philippines and Guatemala to attend and
renew one another in lifelong mission. The 30 Returned Missioners who attended found
that they were able to to strengthen their commitment to mission and the
Franciscan charism by connecting with one another and through a time of prayer and
reflection led by Srs. Elizabeth Fuhr, OSF and Antonia Anthony, OSF. Kim Smolik and Fr. George Corrigan, OFM (Returned Missioner, Kenya, 1996-1999) inspired all with a presentation about the current state of FMS and helped facilitate a dialogue about the future of mission and FMS.
This retreat was generously funded through the support of the Holy Name Province May Bonfils Stanton Memorial Trust.
