The Dominican Sisters of St Cecilia are hosting an Encountering Christ Retreat from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 October, dedicated to Blessed John Paul II on the occasion of his first feast day on Saturday 22 October.

The “Encountering Christ with Blessed John Paul II” retreat will be held at The Hermitage in Mittagong. Talks throughout the weekend will focus on some of the main themes of his life and papacy.

Following Blessed John Paul II’s love for the Eucharist, the retreat will have Eucharistic Adoration beginning on Saturday morning, lasting throughout the day and night, and conclude with Benediction Sunday midday.

About 45 young women between the ages of 18 and 35 will be attending the retreat. The young women will travel from Sydney, Parramatta, Melbourne, Canberra-Golburn, Wagga Wagga and Perth.

Fr Paul Rowse OP, chaplain at the University of Sydney and Fr Bernard Gordon from the Good Shepherd Seminary will be at the retreat at various times during the weekend.
