Retreat for the Catechists Organized in Miao Diocese
8th Sept, (Margherita) Mia0: A Four-day Annual Retreat was organized for all the Catechists in Miao Diocese in Margherita from 8th – 11th September in Divine Retreat Centre Margherita.
The Catechetical Commission of the Diocese of Miao, under the leadership of Fr. Shaji organized the four-day renewal programme for all the Catechists in the Diocese of Miao to animate them to become more committed to their ministry, espcially during this Year of Faith.
Bishop George was the Main Celebrant at the inaugural mass. Speaking to the Catechists, he said, “The Church in Arunachal is a Church of the Laity. It is what it is because of your contribution. We need to have the same vigour and commitment that we used to have before to make our Church deeply rooted in the Faith. He also said, “When you go back to your villages after this retreat, you should make our people know the importance of family prayer. We should all give witness to our Faith by words and life. May God bless you all”
“We thank our Bishop George for organizing such a beautiful retreat to renew and strengthen our Faith in Christ, especially during this Year of Faith. The Spirit we have received from here will make us more dedicated to the service of bringing people closer to God.” said a Catechist at the end of the Retreat.
The Retreat concluded on 12th September, 2013.
