On 7th October, 35 workers and house staff of our four houses of New Delhi – R.K. Puram, Snehalaya, Najafgarh and Vasant Vihar made their annual retreat at Auxilium Holy Child, Vasant Vihar.
The day’s programme was animated by Rev. Fr. P.J. Mathew from Dharuheara.
Through input sessions with the help of motivational stories the preacher led the participants to arrive at the following conclusions:
- God created us to play a responsible and unique role in our life.
- We are surrounded by difficulties and problems, but we must respond to these positively, for our God is with us always.
- The Family Rosary is an essential element for our Christian living
In the afternoon the participants spent the time in front of the Blessed Sacrament, reception of the sacrament of Confession and the Holy Eucharist. At the end of the day the retreatants praised and thanked God for the wonderful opportunity to spend the day in His Company. At the end of the retreat everyone reached a Rosary as a gift.
