"Being a Friend of God"

To celebrate the Year of Faith, the Catholic Women's League of St. Peter's Parish recently held a day of prayer/retreat day based on the theme "Being a Friend of God".  The lives and stories of different saints were presented as sources of inspiration for our personal quests to be a holy people. 
About 20 parishioners and friends took part in the day, which began with Mass at St. Peter's.  The remainder of the day took place at the beautiful Jesuit spiritual centre just outside the city.  Everyone had a good time and is looking forward to our next day of prayer!
