Our Lady of Recovery, Pray For Us!
On Saturday 9/17/2016 we were blessed to have Bobby J. give a talk at the annual Calix Retreat. Bobby knew Sr. Ignatia and shared with us his fond memories of this wonderful nun. Bobby is very soft-spoken so turn the volume all the way up and parts may still be difficult to hear.

1974 - Pope Paul VI Audience
Note: This file contains the audio of Pope Paul VI addressing the group of Calix members who traveled to Rome in 1974. Between the quality of the recording and the Pope’s Italian accent it is difficult to make out all that he says. It will help to have the text of Pope Paul VI address (also in this folder) open to follow along. There is additional talk in Italian that is also translated as part of the audio. This was a true blessing for the Society on the occasion of our 25th anniversary.
