RCIA Retreat Jun 2011

I created a blog today to store documents, writings, and pictures for posting to Twitter - another step in my "technology upgrade".

Posted here are three pictures of the RCIA retreat we conducted yesterday, June 25, 2011, at the Chinese Martyrs Catholic Church. About 150 adults, 50 children, plus volunteers were in attendance. Most of them newly baptised. This "Mystagogy Retreat" was one of two RCIA retreats that all RCIA participants must attend. The other RCIA retreat - the Pre-Catechumenate Retreat - is usually conducted in November of each year.

I'd like to express my sincere gratitude to the following people:

- Fr. Dominic Hoang and Fr. Joseph Ly who stayed late to hear all confessions
- The youth leaders who looked after 50 children and made it possible for the retreat to proceed without distractions
- The English RCIA group whose planning and participation made the Eucharistic Adoration and concurrent Confession session in the afternoon orderly and enriching
- The St. Cecilia Choir who provided great music and singing for meditation
- All volunteers and helpers from Sunday 9:15 a.m. RCIA

God bless you all for making the retreat another success!
