Good Shepherd Catholic, Parish of Phalaborwa Caregivers’ retreat held at St. John’s Church, 29 April 2016
Word from Father Wilfred: the retreat is a time of prayer, we reflect and think about ourselves. Our jobs as caregivers are not an easy because we are taking care of sick people who are weak and they need our help so that they can move on with their life. We encourage them to accept the situation and to take their medication according to doctor’s orders. Father said that the Pope calls this year of Mercy; we offend God in many ways. During this Year of Mercy we are encouraged to look at our own lives and see how we have offended God. We are to become the light of the children and in the community, we bring hope, love.
