The Christmas retreat was the perfect way to prepare spiritually for Christmas! All participants got to listen to a very deep sermon by Father Andrea and got to know each other and themselves better through discussing what we had learned, playing games, eating together and then attending mass. Such an event was like our personal Star of Bethlehem, allowing us to get closer to our Savior through deeper knowledge of Him and through better knowing the members of the Church, His Mystical Body. Personally, as a foreigner who is far away from his blood relatives, I can confidently say that I found my second home in my brothers and sisters in Christ; and everyone would be very welcome to join us in other opportunities.
