199 Punggol 17th Ave
$300/- (ensuite single-room & meals included)

As leaders, we may be so used to tending to those under our care that we may not look into our own spiritual and emotional well-being. Might we have any childhood trauma or past hurt that continues to affect our behaviour today and result in wounding those we lead?

At this 2-day 1-night (2D1N) weekend stay-in retreat, you will spend time with Jesus in personal prayer, contemplating the Word of God, and guided Sacrament of Reconciliation. You will also meet with a Spiritual Director one-to-one to guide you in your personal prayer.

A Day of Recollection: Peace of Mind
Mon 1 Jul
9.30am - 4.30pm
Montfort Centre

Calling All Educators:
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. (John 14:27)

Peace, more often than not, lives underneath the turmoils and anxieties of our hearts. With the bombardment of social media, we are exposed to more information than we can absorb and more distressing news than we can process. Not letting our hearts be troubled and not being afraid seems to be just impossible. However, Jesus’ prayer for us is not that we be taken out of this anxious world but that we may be protected from all anxiety (cf. John 17:15). How then might we as Christians, remain centred in Christ in the midst of an anxious world?
