Tamil RCIA Retreat 2010/2011

The Tamil RCIA group (Rite of the Christians Initiation for Adults) organized a half a day retreat for those preparing themselves to be baptized and confirmed on Easter 2011. 20 candidates participated. This retreat was held at the St Paul the Hermit Chapel, Rahang, Negeri Sembilan on 14th November 2010 (Sunday) from 9 am to 2 pm.

The theme of the retreat was “WELCOMING JESUS”. The facilitators started the retreat with an ice-Breaking session by introducing the candidates with their sponsors. Then, the sponsors welcomed them warm-heartedly and shared their faith experiences with the candidates.

The chairperson of this Tamil RCIA, Miss Theresa Soosay gave a session on “Welcoming Jesus” in their lives. Fr George Packiasamy was present on this introductory session with the candidates and sponsors. He shared the importance of attending this retreat because it is a time of making a right step to follow Jesus and preparing for the Rite of Acceptance on the 1st Sunday of Advent 2010. The retreat ended with lunch.
