A new novice for the Sister Servants of the Eternal Word, who haven't had one in a while. They seem to be getting back on their feet after the death of their foundress. I love their work of providing retreat and respite, so badly needed in the world. I could see myself doing something like that when I was younger. https://sisterservants.org/media/blog/allow-us-to-introduce/

Just found these recent pictures of the Benedictines of St. Cecilia's Abbey, UK. They belong to the Congregation of Solesmes. In the picture, they have two novices (or maybe one's a junior professed?) and four postulants. Two entered this year, and the other two I believe are about to receive the habit this month. I will let you know when they do!

I wonder why the sisters themselves do not give the retreats, as do the Religious of the Cenacle, for example, who have been doing so since the 19th century....

They seem only to have priests leading their retreats, although they do involve themselves with catechesis, as the Cenacle sisters did. Sadly, the rc's are very reduced in number and don't do many retreats themselves, any longer, relying on priests, deacons, other religious and even lay folk to help with that ministry.

Well, there are many "lay" retreat directors who are highly trained and certainly qualified. I just wonder why a community that has retreats as one of its main ministries doesn't train its own members to do retreats and spiritual direction.

Well, I never said the lay directors would not be highly qualified, only what was going on with the Cenacle sisters. For these sisters, I would imagine it's some sort of deference to priests? Or, perhaps, a way to insure that there is always a priest available for confessions and Masses during retreats? I imagine if one asked, one would find out! :-)
