On the weekend of 11thof August, our Rector, Fr Felix took time off his busy schedule to lead the Pastoral Parish Council members on a retreat to the Greccio Retreat House run by the Franciscan sisters. Altogether 17 members of the PPC took time to assess their role as PPC members and to take stock of the current situation of the parish so as to plot direction for the parish for the coming year or 2.

It was a time for bonding led by the PPC chairman, Thomas Ting with creative interaction with lessons imbedded. Fr Felix carefully prepared thought provoking input for the PPC members. As a whole everyone came away refreshed, with better working relations and greater appreciation for each others’ strengths. We also greatly appreciated the delicious cooking of Sr Audrey and the personal attention of Sr Flora during our stay at Greccio.
