Holy Week Retreat: My Gift to One Lucky Person

I once read before that one cannot go to heaven alone. We must bring someone with us.

I suppose it was an indirect way of saying that as Christians or Catholics, it is everyone’s responsibility to evangelize. Bringing people closer to the Lord is a job or vocation that we all have. It is not reserved for priests or religious sisters.

For this coming Holy Week, April 1 to 3, 2010, I would like to gift one person with the chance to attend a Holy Week Triduum Retreat at the Ateneo de Manila University. This will be held at the Escaler Hall, Science Education Complex Building. Daily schedule from Holy Thursday to Black Saturday is from 7:30am to 12:30pm. Retreat Directors are the following: Fr. Miguel B. Lambino SJ, Fr. Victor C. de Jesus, SJ, and Fr. Arturo M. Borja, SJ.

Recollection fee per person for the three days is P1,200.00. If you would like to have the chance to attend the retreat for free, please leave a comment for this blogpost and complete the sentence (you may write more than one sentence): “I would like to attend this retreat because…”

I will shoulder the cost of the recollection fee for one person. If there are several people who leave a comment, or join the contest (there are other ways to join and to have the chance to win, as will be explained in my other website), I will choose the winner by seeing which answer or comment best connects with me.

I intend to choose the winner on March 23, 2010 and will announce the name shortly after that. Instructions will be given to the winner by e-mail or through my blogs.

If you would like to inquire about and make a reservation for the retreat but not join the contest, you may call Ida Solis at 426-6081 to 82.

I hope to hear from you.

    “I would like to attend this retreat because I would want to re-check the status of my relationship with God.” I have been brought up in a Catholic school and have had imbibed the strict religious beliefs in all major decisions in my life. At my age and status now, having experienced so much, I have realized, my faith has lost “that idealism”. Meaning, I start to question the authentism of what I have learned since childhood now that realisties bite…This is important since my present and future decisions heavily rely on what the shape of my faith will be…

    “I would like to attend this retreat because I want to open myself to God’s invitation to repentance, a change of heart and a change of life. I want to journey with Him and seek a true conversion of heart, to be reawakened and to reexamine myself and my relationship with Him.”
