Each year the 13 LACW Sister Houses get together for our annual retreat at La Casa de Maria Retreat Center in Montecito, near Santa Barbara. This year because of scheduling difficulties, we gathered on Memorial Day weekend rather than in the Fall. This year 40 Catholic Workers from around the nation, and Mexico, gathered to listen to presentations from this year's facilitators, Willa Bickham and Brendan Walsh from Viva House Catholic Worker in Baltimore, MD, and to socialize, pray, sing, relax, and just have a good time. We also remembered our brothers who are in prison and jail: Jeff Dietrich, David Omondi, Dennis Apel, and Faustino Cruz, as well as the two we lost in the past year: Dan Delany (co-founder of the LACW) and Fr. Daniel Berrigan, SJ.
