Passion and Purpose
Bomana: An overnight retreat was held at Sivarai Namona, the Archdiocesan Pastoral Centre, Bomana. Eight Executive members of the Catholic Professionals Society (CPS) attended the retreat on the 10th and 11th September. It was entitled: Passion and Purpose, a quest for Life and animated by Fr Ambrose Pereira sdb, Spiritual Director of CPS.
In a very welcoming environment, quiet and prayerful atmosphere the retreat offered the participants a time of prayer, reflection and sharing of personal experiences. It gave each one the opportunity too be inspired by reflective questions, refill oneself with vital spiritual energy from the Lord, and be nourished and enlightened to deal with the issues ahead.
The retreat was well planned and organized by the Formation group. Participation and interaction has given the members a clearer focus and greater commitment. The Sisters of Notre Dame laid out neat and clean rooms and set out delicious food to cater to a very reflective, restful and relaxed stay.
Several used the opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The retreat concluded with the celebration of the Eucharist and a renewal of the Catholic Professionals’ ‘Pledge of Commitment’.
Members who attended the retreat were: Gaberial Dusava, Kila Ai, Florence Sariman, Bibian Barreng, Colin Yaum, Michael Varpik, Paul Harricknen and Gia Vela.
