Following are comments from one of the attendees at the weekend in Ireland:

I really enjoyed the weekend and think that I will only get the full impact after practicing what we were taught. I think that there was a very good balance between spiritual and humanity talks, prayers, Mass etc.


Everyone was very friendly and approachable. Thank you sincerely for all the time and effort you all put into delivering such a great programme.


I think the Adult Faith Formation retreat will help me to:


  • Come closer to God through contemplative prayer
  • Learn to accept my imperfections and use the skills we have be given to improve my thinking processes
  • Have more compassion for myself and others – see the good
  • Learn to be more resilient
  • Learn to trust in God more and let Him transform me
  • Be aware that all of the above will take practice!


As we were told, the weekend was just a ‘taster’, which has given me an appetite for more, Thank you all again!
