On August 29, 1913, 65 men attended the first retreat held at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary. The next week, a second retreat was held. Under the direction of Father Drumgoole, the spiritual director of these retreats, five members from the first retreat and five members from the second came together to form the Laymen’s Retreat League. John Ferreck acted as president of this league until his death in 1920.
