Nazareth House Retreat
Nazareth House Staff from the ART Clinic, the Hospice, the old aged home and the HIV Support Group , Johannesburg, participated in a retreat at Lumko Institute in Benoni led by Father Phina John Mmakola around the theme LIGHT, CREATION and a WORD.
There was a lot group sharing as well as an individual testimonies about the word of God touching our different tasks on a daily basis in our care for one another. There was much to revitalize the spirit of the attendees. The environment was peaceful, and the accommodation was tranquil.
The teachings from Fr Phina were very touching, encouraging and reconciling and provided us with a lot of strength to face the scourge of HIV/AIDS. The retreat included topics such as forgiveness in its fullness, compassion, love and acceptance which is something we often miss in our daily lives. And finally he gave the participants a topic to reflect on “What is the plan from here for my world”
