Recently a group of staff from Salesian College Sunbury attended a residential retreat held at Don Bosco Retreat Centre in Lysterfield. It was an optional and invitation-only event for staff, especially the new ones, to explore their faith and strengthen relationship with fellow staff in a different atmosphere.
The Director of the retreat centre, Fr Martin Tanti SDB who is also a past pupil of Salesian College, facilitated this two-day retreat.
A few interesting topics were discussed and shared in friendly manners and respect. A key word surfaced during the retreat was ‘openness’ in faith journeys. Being a human person is a blessing as everyone is made in the image of God [Gen 1:26]. Every human person is searching for meaning in life either through the Christian teaching or in their own way. An openness and believing yourself as a person of good will is a good start of living a meaningful life.
Being on a retreat is always good. It stops and makes one think of who they are and how life has been. It was an enjoyable time for the staff who attended the retreat. The retreat was concluded with a reenactment of the Last Supper and a Eucharist led by Fr. Martin.
