New staff in charge of Lino Lakes Correctional Facility have determined that the Residents Encounter Christ (REC) retreats should be limited to one day rather than the normal two days. There is no way the retreat can be accomplished in one day. Given these circumstances, it is with great sadness to report that we cannot have the REC retreat at Lino Lakes in September as planned. We are seeking further discussion with higher level officials to explain the concerns and benefits of REC while at the same time looking for ways to build bridges with Lino Lakes Staff so that we may be able to have a REC retreat weekend there again in the near future.
Prayers are greatly needed - please pray for Prison Officials, those in prisons, their families, those who are victims and those who minister to them - to discern God’s Divine Plan and be open to His forgiveness and salvation. Come Holy Spirit - please bestow upon us the graces of understanding, council and fortitude. Thank you and blessings
