Links to songs that were shared during the retreat:
We kicked off the morning with refreshments, prayer, introduction and an ice breaker.
The first presentation was on Walking with Jesus and the ups and downs, the challenges and joys that come with choosing to follow Jesus.
Then we moved on the a presentation on Walking Away from an abusive marriage and the struggles and risks associated.
After that we had a presentation on Walking with Jesus as a Single Mom but not alone as we always have Jesus helping.
Then we broke for lunch and had some time to share and get acquainted even more with our new and old friends.
In the afternoon we had an activity with door prizes.
Our parish priests offered to be available for confession for those who were interested in partaking of this wonderful sacrament.
The following presentation was on Walking with Jesus Today and Forward. What does it really mean to follow Jesus. We are encouraged to "walk our talk" and teach by example.
We had the opportunity to share with each other on what it is like to Walk with Jesus in our particular vocations and states in life.
