How To Make Stress Your Friend
Based on the latest research by Dr. Kelly McGonigle, learn how our handling of stress can either shorten or extend our healthy life span.

We will explore how stress becomes our friend as we answer two questions: How does stress drain life from me? How does stress gift me to love more deeply God, others and myself?

Date: Wednesday, 30 May 2018

Time: 7.30pm - 9.30pm

Contribution: $50 for 1 talk, $80 for 2 talks

What Is The Key To Happiness?
Happiness does not depend on everything outside us going well but rather on what is happening inside us. Where are the happiest people in the world, and what are their secrets to yielding true happiness? We will answer this with the research from the award winning documentary “Happy.”

The second part will feature simple processes to daily find happiness wherever it eludes us.

Peace Be With You: Transforming Fear Into Gift
Each year, the pace of life increases, violence creeps closer to our homes, and peace becomes more a wish than a reality. This healing retreat will focus on how Jesus sent the Holy Spirit (John 20:19-23) to transform the disciples “behind locked doors out of fear” into bold, risk-taking apostles rooted in a deep peace not shaken even by imprisonment, violence and death. This transformation will happen to us too when we - as the apostles - discover a deeper image of God, a peace that heals our hurts, and the empowering Spirit that sends us forth on our unique mission.

(The celebration of the Eucharist in the Roman Rite will be included.)

Dates & Times: Friday, 1 June (7.30pm) - Sunday, 3 June 2018 (5pm)

Contribution: $270 (non-AC), $330 (AC)

(Update - 5 March: We are fully subscribed for this retreat. We already have about 10 on the waiting list as well. We apologise that we can't accept more registrations.)
