The theme of the retreat was “Build Yourself Upon Your Most Holy Faith.”.



There were two conferences, a longer homily during the mass, adoration and plenty of free time for personal prayer every day. The preacher stressed on driving out demons or our demonic attitude or behavior in the year of faith that as priests we can be all renewed in the spirit.
