On Saturday, 3rd March 2018, the Catechetical Ministry of St. Joseph had its first retreat for all catechists with the theme, “FALLING IN LOVE.” A total of 20 catechists from the Tamil and English sections participated in this retreat. It was facilitated by Ms. Elizabeth and Ms. Nita Ng, from the Penang Diocese Retreat and Spirituality team.
The retreat began with an imaginative prayer imagining a little baby Jesus who was about 3 years old. This was led by Elizabeth. The participants truly experienced the presence of Boy Jesus and shared their experience during the group sharing.
Elizabeth introduced again another form of prayer on Embodied Liturgical Dance Prayer. The participants were encouraged to dance freely with musics and they shared the experiences as well.
The last part was on gratitude prayer guided by Nita Ng reflecting on a significant moment and to meditate on how God was present in that particular moment.
The catechists were really happy and learned various form of prayers in encountering with Christ in every moment of our lives.
