Parish Retreat on 16th June

It was a rainy day but we were  welcomed very warmly by Sister Nora at St. Joseph's Prayer Centre, Freshfield                                                        

In the light of the  Congress being held in  Liverpool in September, which is concentrating on 'The Eucharist', the 3 leaders of the parish RCIA programme (Beryl, Chris and Paul) decided we would use the day to discuss what 'The Eucharist ' meant to us. Fr. John spent the day on a personal retreat but celebrated Mass for us at the end of the day.

Our discussions were very open and interesting as we learnt  a little of the history of the Eucharist in the Old Testament. We went on to talk of our own experiences in the reception of Holy Communion   at various stages of our lives, how we felt and how our relationships help us to develop our thoughts of Jesus in the Eucharist. We had an enjoyable day, we  met some new friends and returned with lots to think about  and may perhaps be a little closer to the Lord when we next celebrate Mass.
