We facilitated a 4 days retreat at St. Josephs’ Girls School from November 25th 2016 to November 27th 2016 under the theme, ’’Choose life(Deuteronomy 30:19) This is a girl’s secondary school based in Nsambya under the administration of Little Sisters of Nkokonjeru, at least 2000 students were present for the retreat.
Every morning we started with Eucharist celebrations to bless the day and the chaplain of the school, Fr. Paul led the first mass on day 1 and Fr. Leonard Olobo, CSC led the other days.
In the homilies, students were urged to open up their minds during the teachings so that they benefit from the retreat.
