A Passionist in Japan, page three

Celebrating the Eucharist in JapanRetreats for religious women last for ten days and are structured for the different groups. We are involved in offering spiritual conferences, group dialogue, and meetings for personal spiritual direction.

My principal ministry during retreats is to celebrate the Eucharist, to administer the sacrament of reconciliation, to give conferences and meditations, and to offer spiritual direction.

I'm very committed to this ministry and apostolate, because it enables me to follow in the footsteps of our founder, St. Paul of the Cross, and at the same time, it responds to the signs of the times for the church in Japan. It is a delicate and necessary service to religious women, especially, who have such a significant and necessary role in the life of the Japanese church. I feel it corresponds to the great challenge that is ours as contemplative, missionary Passionists.
