In the past few years, several people have expressed an interest in visiting our convent at Ruma, IL.  While I was on retreat I chose Sept 17-18 for a time when a group of 20 or less can spend an overnight there.  What we do will probably depend somewhat on the number who go.  However, there are plenty of grounds to walk about and learn the history of the place.  The Sisters there enjoy visitors.  And, of course, since it is a 4 hour trip one way, we probably will want to car pool.  At any rate, let me know if you have any interest at all.  You will not be making a “commitment” until later, and even that will only be to let the convent staff know how to plan meals.  I thought if I let you know in advance, you could put it on your calendar.
