Annual Retreat of the Province of Bangalore



(Bangalore, India) The Annual Retreat for the Province of Bangalore (first among the two for this year) took place from 7th to 12th July at MAITREYA, a centre for Eco-Spirituality, run by the Sisters of the Holy Cross of Kottayam, Bannerghatta Road, Bangalore.

Altogether 39 Retreatants belonging to different communities from all over India had a wonderful time of being closer to God this week. The Retreat was preached by Rev. Fr. K. M. Joseph, a Jesuit from Jamshedpur Province. In his talks, he reflected with us the aspects of our life as followers of Jesus the Redeemer in detail, which were of great help for us to live our lives as true missionaries according to the way and spirit of St. Alphonsus.

In every aspect, the participation of the Confreres was something great and admirable, which in fact helped us to grow in closeness to God as a community of Redemptorists and made the Retreat a grand success. Overall, the Retreat helped us to go into the depths of innermost beings as per the theme – ‘Go into the Deep’.
