Fr. Paul, a priest at Holy Spirit Prep High School in Atlanta, was the priest for our girls retreat this weekend. On Palm Sunday He celebrated mass and shared a really good message with all of us. He spoke mainly about the part in the Gospel that read, “The Lord […]
This past weekend the missionary girls were so blessed to help put on a retreat for St. Monica’s Life Teen girls. I have been sitting here for the last ten minutes trying to figure out what to say about how absolutely amazing this weekend was but I have no words. […]
There has been so much going on here at Covecrest but it is amazing how through all the doing I have still found time to be. The spirit of my prayer has been on fire lately. I have been enjoying so much spending time with the Lord as often as […]

When the missionaries traveled to Mexico we went on a pilgrimage to Saltillo. In Saltillo there is a chapel that the local people call “The Miracle Chapel”. When you go to the miracle chapel you pray for a specific miracle. Then you buy this little charm and when God grants […]
Before I began the 8 day silent retreat I was really struggling with how distant I felt from God. It was not a discouraging feeling more like “UGH aren’t I any closer to you yet.” I felt like I was at the starting line and still had 26.1 miles to […]
