Palm Sunday weekend, Saturday 24 March 2018

The 2018 Catholic Teachers Retreat provides attendees with the opportunity to reflect on their own faith and to build their personal relationship with Christ.  The retreat will be let by Fr Mark Chamberlain, an experienced retreat leader, hospital and university Chaplain. It is being held at the historical Burns Lodge in Mosgiel (fifteen minutes from Dunedin airport).

Although you may be planning for the Convention in June but there are many staff who won’t have that opportunity who would benefit from the retreat. It is a time to reflect on their faith in this wonderful setting.

National retreats have been requested for some time. It is important that we get enough people to continue to plan them on a regular basis. Please encourage staff to attend and book as soon as possible. We understand this is a busy time of year, however we are required to confirm numbers in mid-February.
