Sr. Cathy Cahill, OSF
Franciscan Sister of Allegany
Sister Cathy Cahill, OSF is a Franciscan Sister of Allegany with over 30 years experience leading retreats. She enjoys being with people on retreat as they open themselves to God’s blessings. After a career in elementary education as a teacher, then administrator, Sister Cathy trained as an alcoholism counselor at Lutheran General Hospital in Chicago. This led eventually to retreat ministry. For 23 years she served as director of a retreat center. Presently retreat work and spiritual direction are her main ministry as she travels widely to spread the joy found in relationship with the God who wants a relationship with us.
While most of the retreats that Sister Cathy leads are for people who utilize a 12 Step Program such as Alcoholics Anonymous, AlAnon, etc, she also prepares and leads retreats for other groups desiring a time of reflection and renewal. These groups have included parish staffs, school faculties, small faith communities, and bible study groups.
