Each February, Simple House volunteers travel to Conception Abbey in Conception, Missouri, for a week-long silent retreat. This is a good time for both communities to come together, share experiences, and re-focus hearts and minds on Jesus. Father Adam leads the retreats, and many of his talks can be found on our blog and our YouTube channel.
For the past month, two seminarians were living as part of the KC Simple House community. Brandon Allen and Dylan Ostdiek arrived during the first week of January, which happened to be one of the coldest this year. We had been looking forward to their arrival, especially because they would be responsible for chopping wood and keeping the fireplace going for a month!
