Priests of the archdiocese gathered for their annual retreat from July 3-7.
It was held at Changi Cove and facilitated by Jesuit Fr Olivier Morin from the Seven Fountains Jesuit Retreat Center in Chiangmai, Thailand.
The centre offers a variety of retreats, conferences, days of prayer, and spiritual direction for those seeking personal growth in faith, prayer and in the ability to respond to God in one’s daily life.
Commenting on the retreat, Fr Stephen Yim, parish priest of the Church of the Sacred Heart, said it was a “restful and prayerful time for us.”
“The retreat master Fr Olivier Morin presented the humanity of Jesus in a simple yet mystical way which allowed us to deepen our reflections and meditation,” he said.
Fr Jude David from the Church of St Francis Xavier said, “It was a good time to be with the Lord and with my brothers ... and also a good opportunity to support one another in our priestly vocation.”
