From the Editor

We've started a new year and the Lord is still inviting us to follow Him, each one of us in his/her own particular way. Are you listening? Are you eager to listen? Why not come to one of our upcoming events to take a break from our hectic lives and come more in touch with your inner self and the Lord in you?

Here are some of our proposals:

Upcoming events …

Retreat inspired by "Lord of the Rings"
Christian values inspired by an epic film

God comes to us not only in prayer but also through many channels in our daily life. A film that revolves around what is noble in all of us and how this struggles against the darker unredemed side inside and around us can become a creative and powerful opportunity to rekindle our desire to be better persons.

Led by Fr. Mark Cachia SJ

Open to all - Mount St. Joseph

Awaiting Easter - retreat inspired by the icons
Discover new meaning through icons

Seeking inspiration … 

«before the altar of Our Lady of Montserrat, … he resolved to lay aside his garments and to don the armour of Christ.» Autobiography [17]

After his conversion, Saint Ignatius takes a decisive step at a certain point in his life. Following a night in prayer, he decided to put his trust, no longer in force and human resources (the sword), but in God and in God alone. Furthermore, he adopted a different lifestyle, that of a pilgrim, going wherever his Leader, Jesus Christ, would lead him.

Sometimes, we too are confronted with similar choices. I whom do we put our trust? Whom do we follow?
