E-mail Print PDF

 BELLARY, SEP. 19: The pastoral clergy of the Diocese will begin their annual retreat on Sep. 21 at the St. Anthony’s Centre, Bellary.

The annual spiritual exercises will be animated by Fr. Sahayaraj, Prof. Constantine Fernandes and Mr. Francis D’Souza, under the auspices of the National Charismatic Movement.
All the Catholic priests of the diocese and a few priests belonging to the Religious congregations are expected to participate in the annual event.
“An annual retreat is a privileged moment of grace. It offers the retreatants an opportunity to make an inward spiritual journey to asses one’s life in the light of Jesus’ life and teachings”, said Bishop Henry D’Souza.
“It’s a time one looks backward, to go forward! During the retreat, pastors listen, reflect and get re-charged with spiritual energies to be pastors like Jesus Christ, the God Shepherd”, he added.
“As Jesus invited his disciples to ‘rest a while’ and to be ‘with him’, the retreat is a time to relax and to be in the company of Jesus”, stated Bishop.
All the Catholics of the Diocese have been requested to pray for their pastors, as they rededicate themselves to a life of holiness and service of God’s people.
The retreat will end on the evening of Sep. 25.
