In the first week of August 2016, St Brigid’s Parish, Dubbo hosted its annual Retreat in Everyday Life. The response was outstanding and God’s presence was palpable. Twenty-six parishioners participated over six days with five Spiritual Directors. This year was also the first time we offered the retreat in a school setting. Three staff from St John’s College Dubbo were among the participants. Retreatants said they gained much from the week’s retreat and were delighted that they signed up. The Team were also very happy with the retreat, and most appreciative of the hospitality offered by the presbytery clergy and staff. The Team was too large to all be accommodated in the Presbytery, thank you to Sr Adele for extending hospitality to the overflow! And thank you to Fr Greg and the Dubbo Parish Community for your welcome and prayerful support of this retreat.
