Catechist retreat | Prayer

Date: Monday 1 May, 2023
Speaker: Fr Aloysius Rego OCD
Topic: Prayer: a journey of friendship with God

RSVP: 26 April 2023


We are looking forward to what will be an excellent retreat this year that will focus on St Teresa of Avila’s teaching on prayer, and in particular her understanding of prayer as friendship with God.

The retreat will be facilitated by Fr Aloysius Rego OCD, the Prior of the Discalced Carmelite Friars at Varroville. Fr Rego, lives with his community at the Mount Carmel Retreat Centre, and is a much loved and experienced retreat facilitator.

The retreat will be held in Campbelltown on Monday 1 May 2023, and repeated in Gerringong on Friday 5 May 2023. Catechists (and their spouses) are welcome to attend either retreat.

Each day will commence at at 9:30am sharp, however, catechists are welcome to arrive from 9:00am for tea/coffee and conversation. Eucharistic Celebration (Mass) will occur before lunch. The retreat will conclude at 2:30pm.

Morning tea will be provided, but please bring your own lunch.
