Korean sisters gather in Colorado for 12th annual conference

.- 51 Korean religious sisters working across North America have gathered in the Colorado mountains this week and last, for period of rest, renewal and fellowship. Their 12th annual conference and retreat is being held this year at the St. Malo Catholic Retreat and Spiritual Center, where, in 1993, Pope John Paul II spent a day in preparation to spread his message of hope to nearly 400,000 young people during Denver’s World Youth Day.

The sisters are sent to North America to work with Korean communities in parishes, nursing homes, schools, etc.

14 different religious congregations are represented this week, from a total of approximately 80 individual sisters that work throughout Canada and the United States.

This year’s retreat master is Rev. Bernard Chang from the diocese of Cheoung Ju in South Korea.

The conference and retreat is being coordinated by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Vincent the Paul, who serve the Korean community at St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Aurora, Colorado.
