Our teen girls have their first retreat

13 Apr

On Tuesday of Holy Week, April 11, our girls between the ages of 12-21 were invited for a retreat day designed especially for them. There were 24 young people sharing the day with us. The day began at 11:00 a.m. and ended at 5:00 p.m. Half were Catholic, some Protestant, and some involved in voodoo. They all were excited to be part of the day, and for most of them, it was the first time ever on a retreat. 

The day began with Praise and Worship. Wanitha Ceus, M.D., one of our medical doctors who works in our Mother Angela Clinic, gave a conference on feminine hygiene and The Gift of Being a Woman. After her conference, the participants had rice, beans, chicken and soda. The afternoon conference with Sr. Inga was on Learning to Pray with the Scriptures. After this, the girls  had time to pray with the Gospel of the day and to share what they prayed and heard.


We ended the day with Mass! After Mass, the young women shared the joy of the Lord they had experienced throughout the day!
