In about a month's time from 24 -29 July 2016, the CALLED...GIFTED...SENT FORTH 2016 Annual Retreat & Formation for Priests, Religious & Lay Leaders in Ministry will be conducted in Divine Retreat Centre. This retreat has transformed and converted the hearts of many who are serving in our Lord's vineyard. It is a blessed ocassion to commit yourself to a time set apart for Jesus - to allow Jesus to speak to your heart.

Is this retreat meant for you? If you are serving the Lord or want to serve the Lord whether it is in a church ministry or in a call God has placed in your heart, then it is meant for you. It is a special grace to come and experience in a personal tangible way how to answer God's Call and to truly serve Him with all your heart.

Is daily and ministry life so busy that I have no time to experience a personal retreat?

Am I busy ministering to others but have no time for Jesus to minister to 
my heart, my mind, my soul?

What is my Call from God - how am I answering His Call? 

Am I listening to what God wants of me NOT what I want to do for God?

Is my ministry bcoming burdensome, dry and rife with politics...just a routine?

Is there prayer, reflection, humility  and discernment in how I live for Jesus each day??

Is there joy, peace and love in my ministry?

If any of the above quesions has touched a chord in your heart, this Divine Annual CALLED ...GIFTED SENT FORTH 2016 Retreat & Spiritual Formation for Priests, Religious & Lay Leaders in Ministry is an anointed time of Grace to sit, listen, be renewed and empowered at the Feet of Jesus!
