Retreat in Ireland

This year the annual retreat of RODS was rather special. For the first time, we went beyond these shores, as a community, to the Cistercian Monastery at Mount Melleray on the slopes of the Knockmealdown mountains in Ireland. We were at the Abbey from September 8th to September 13th and during this time we were invited to share in the liturgy and the times of prayer of the monks, while enjoying the serene beauty and profound silence of the monastery and the surrounding countryside. This formed the perfect setting for our retreat, guided by Fr. Paul Zammit S.J. who travelled with us. The following are some impressions from different members of RODS.

But how to do this without adding more meetings to our already-packed schedules?

CLC Children Seminar - October 2013

Childrens_Seminar_2013_logoBetween the 18th and 20th October, 2013 the annual CLC children’s seminar was held at Mt. St. Joseph, concurrent with the adult’s seminar. In keeping with the theme of the adult’s seminar, From Roots to Frontiers, the main focus of this year’s children’s seminar was living out our faith on a day-to-day basis. To develop this theme, ways in which the children could be active participants in issues involving poverty and the environment were explored.
