This weekend the Austin/San Antonio Region hosted what we hope will become an annual retreat for the three Texas regions—Austin/San Antonio, Dallas, and Houston. The Very Rev. R. Lucian Millette, judicial vicar in Galveston/Houston and the Houston Region chaplain, led the participants on a beautiful Order of Malta spiritual journey. The Cedarbrake Retreat and Renewal Center in the Austin Diocese provided a peaceful campus conveniently located for all three regions.
There were 23 knights, dames, candidates and spouses in attendance. And the responses from the retreat participants suggest this retreat may be properly entitled the “First Annual” Texas retreat.
We are very thankful that our small (but growing) region was able to host such a successful first-time event.
