Our Weekend At Maria Trost Mission

Two weeks before Easter we held our second Get-Away weekend of spiritual renewal at Maria Trost, Comboni Mission in Lydenburg. Father Rafael guided us as we explored Laudate Si, the Holy Father’s answer to the problems issuing from global warming.  It was very enriching for all who participated. We plan to have another later in the year and would recommend it to anyone, even just getting out of the city hustle is a tonic in itself.  Apart from our discussions, prayer times, lovely walks, we had great fun playing Rummikub till 11.00 p.m. We also could purchase vegetables from the vast vegetable garden! The weekend was originally planned for anyone associated with our Mercy work, but is open to anyone.  See photos below.
