Priests' Retreat 2019
The priests of the Syro-Malankara Catholic Eparchy had their annual retreat from August 5 to 9 at the Don Bosco Retreat Center, Rockland. His Excellency Most Rev. Dr. Philipos Mar Stephanos and 21 priests participated in the retreat. The retreat was directed by Fr. Joseph Panthaplamthottiyil, the former Superior General of the CMI congregation, on the topics of faith-based life, Word-based life, and Christ-centered life.
The participants had an enriching and renewing experience and helped the retreatants to spend time in prayer and reflection. The occasion was also used to convene an official meeting of the Presbyteral Council of the Eparchy.
