Who or what is “Catholics Online”?
In early 2017, Amy Brooks (blogger at prayerwinechocolate.com and author of Be Yourself: A Catholic Journal for Girls), created a group on Facebook titled “Catholic Social Media Influencers”. Amy shared her vision for the group – to promote Catholics sharing their talents online and create a community of support among all Catholic influencers – male or female, blogger or artisan, ministry founder or motivational speaker).
Shortly after creating the group, Amy asked Sara Estabrooks (blogger of To Jesus, Sincerely) to help administrate the group and promote the
mbers in the community. Sara brought a passion to the group that all members recognized and embraced. Sara’s talent and work ethic made that community grow and Amy’s vision of an online directory and resource became a reality.

Why are you calling it a “Chocolate Retreat“?
This retreat is being held at the McMahon Retreat House in Wrentham, Massachusets.
The McMahon Retreat House is located on the grounds of Mount Saint Mary’s Abbey. This Abbey is home to close to fifty nuns of the Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance, more commonly known as Trappistines. The Order was founded in 1098 at Citeaux, France and is now comprised of monks and nuns who live in over one hundred and seventy monasteries throughout the world. Trappistine Quality Candy, is the candy making industry that allows this community to be self-supporting. Through this work the Trappistine nuns are able to share with the poor and supports the communal life, giving Sisters the opportunity to work together for the common good. Through both prayer and effort, community members regardless of age can actively participate in this ‘labor of love’.
We will be praying with these sisters for part of the Retreat and will be able to purchase their candy from their gift shop!
Retreat attendees and speakers are coming from all over the U.S. and one member is traveling from Panama! The Reignite Your Fire Retreat and Conference is being held April 27 – 29 (see agenda above). CatholicsOnline.net would like to thank the Sisters of Trappistine Quality Candy who have offered their mansion for our event.
