Friends of IL RITIRO:
The Application Committee has made a decision regarding the role of Director of the IL RITIRO Franciscan Retreat Center. We have discerned John B. Wainscott, aka Deacon Scotty, is called to succeed Fr. Paul Gallagher in this important role.
Deacon Scotty brings with him experience from the Boys Scouts of America, the Cathedral Basilica, the Secular Franciscans, and the Diaconate. In the spirit of Saints Francis and Clare, he will serve and assist all of you seeking prayerful accompaniment and support in your life's spiritual journey and quest for growth and enlightenment.
The Staff page has been updated with Deacon Scotty’s bio for your reference:
Please continue to hold the the mission of IL RITIRO in your mind and heart.
Peace and All Good!
