The young adults from the Parish of South Yarra gathered last Saturday for a full day retreat at St Joseph’s Church. There was about fifteen participants that attended the annual retreat. They started the day with some praise and worship. Then they had the privilege to meet Dr Joel Hodge who is a professor in systematic theology. Joel ran the first session where he talked about the relationship between God and humanity. Then YAM gathered for a well deserved meal at Nandos and had a great time together. Session 2 was run by the Parish Priest Father Brian, who has beautifully shared Pope Francis’ letter to the youth namely “Christus Vivit”. The other half of the day was dedicated to group activities, testimonies and fellowship. They concluded the retreat with the rosary and mass. The young adults had a great time at the retreat and are excited for the year to come.

Here are some photos from the retreat:
