Chosen Retreat

‘Come follow me’, Matthew 4:19 was the theme for the weekend Chosen Retreat.

We had a great experience over the weekend, August 18th to 20th at the Chosen Retreat held at Borambola Sport & Recreation Centre, Borambola, near Wagga.

The fun atmosphere was immediately set by the welcoming party and games. There were awesome international guest speakers, James Parker, Anna Krohn, Madeleine Vella and more.

Music by Stephen Kirk & the Kirk clan created a both a celebratory and prayerful atmosphere through the numerous songs to which we listened, sang and danced.

A number of moving testimonies were given by various youth; how God is working in their daily life and the challenges of living this out as a student at school. The opportunities for Reconciliation, sharing Mass together and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, prayer, prophecy and healing.

Delicious meals and snacks were shared by all and warm comfortable beds with an ice covering of the ground outside.

Finally our goodbyes till the next Chosen event and ACYF, December 7th -9th in Sydney.

Registrations for the next Stronger Retreat are open, September 15-17th, 2017.

A special thank you to all who helped us to be there and enjoy a ‘Chosen’ filled weekend
