Tobago Confirmation candidates were invited to write their reflections on the overnight retreat which was held June 1–2. It was the first retreat for this group and it was held at our beautiful retreat centre right here in Scarborough.
The theme of the retreat was: I have called you by your name (Is 43:1), and it was thoroughly explored and very well presented by Lay Minister Richard McFarlane and his team of four young adults.
