Circle of Mercy Associates gather for retreat dayMay 4, 2009
The Circle of Mercy Associates Group of the Wilcannia-Forbes Congregation recently enjoyed a retreat day with Presentation Sister Anne Lane. Sister Nance Cale RSM, the group’s co-ordinator, reports.
On May 4, the Circle of Mercy Associates Group of the Wilcannia-Forbes Congregation enjoyed a retreat day facilitated by Presentation Sister Anne Lane. The focus of the day was “Reflection Upon Life Experiences”.
Time for silence, sharing and prayer were appreciated by all who participated. The group of 25 entered into contemporary life experiences as they gained strength from each other’s sharing of faith and life. The use of audio-visuals added an enriching dimension to the day.
The deep sense of community within the group encouraged trust and openness to each other. Anne led us in a gentle and challenging way to be comforted by God’s presence in our lives through our gifts and limitations and to share that love with others.
