From June 16 through June 22 the Basilian Fathers in Colombia held their annual retreat at Casa Villa Asís, a Franciscan Retreat House in Jamundí a town in the Valle de Cauca.

The retreat director for the Basilians was Father Federico Carrasquilla of the Archdiocese of Medellín. He holds degrees from the Gregorian University in Rome and Louvain in Belgium.
