Encountering God’s Mercy with our Youth Leaders
On Friday 7 October at Pallotti College in Millgrove, we gathered youth leaders from across the Archdiocese of Melbourne to come together and retreat. We were led beautifully by Sr Cecila-Rose and Sr Elena-Marie who joined us from the Dominican Sisters of St Cecilia in Sydney to guide us through Encountering God’s Mercy.
We listened to prepared sessions, spent time in discussion, joined in song together, celebrated Mass, had opportunity for Confession and time in Adoration with Fr Dishan. The annual Archdiocesan Office for Youth Leader Retreat is designed to help those who minister to others take time out to gain some of their own inspiration and formation. By growing and developing their own spirituality, leaders are better equipped to guide others. After a refreshing and invigorating three day retreat, we farewelled the sisters and returned to our parishes inspired and elated.
