I was away in NUBE Training Center in Port Dickson for the Retreat of catecumens of RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) this weekend (Friday to Sunday).
It was our parish level 4-language retreat in preparation for their Baptism in April. Twelve catecumens and eleven team members & sponsors from our Chinese group attended this retreat.
Due to my mixed up of dates, I have to come back to Kajang to commentate a wedding service on Saturday morning. But I was very happy because Mary the bride, and family were among our 1st RCIA "graduates" in 1992. She was a 12 years old school girl then. I wished her a blessed and happy new family life.
The theme of the Retreat was Deepening our Discipleship - the Spirituality of Communion and was conducted by our very own team members. We have songs, prayers, reflection, sharing and laughing throughout the retreat. The catecumens experienced fellowship and communion through various sessions and activities.
这次避静的主题是“深化门徒精神 - 共融灵修”，并由我们慕道班本身的组员负责带领。这个避静充满赞颂歌声、笑声 、祈祷 、默想及分享。慕道者也从各环节 、各种活动中，切身体验到了友情及主内的共融。
