Panjim, Sep. 18. Twenty-nine perpetually professed Salesian fathers and brothers of the Panjim Province came together to spend 6 days in reflection and prayer at the Don Bosco Agro-Ed Complex, Sulcorna as part of their annual retreat from 8-14 September.
Fr. Loddy Pires, Rector of Don Bosco Renewal Centre Bangalore, through his well animated talks pepped with powerpoint presentations and video clips guided the Salesians through the retreat days.

The sessions focused on the primacy of prayer, the gift of our religious vocation and healing.  The preacher guided the participants through a journey of self-discovery to God's personal plan and finally culminating in the life and vocation of our father and founder St. John Bosco.

Besides the sessions, Fr. Loddy animated the daily meditation and community adoration thus relieving the fathers and brothers to dedicate more time to prayer and reflection.

The highlight of the retreat was a guided healing service through the precious blood of Jesus Christ on the cross by the preacher which were truly sanctifying moments of grace for the participants.  Fr. Loddy directed the retreatants  to reflect on the evangelical vows, community life and our Blessed Mother Mary.

The retreat ended with the Holy Eucharist celebrated by Fr. Ian Figueiredo, Provincial, and the renewal of our vows.
