During the retreat the youth had an opportunity to listen to the Word of God, spend a lot of time in front of the Blessed Sacrament. All the talks were focused on the theme of faith with the view of the Year of faith. The theme was “Rooted and built up in him and established in the faith” (Col 2:7).

The Holy Eucharist on 18th October was celebrated by Rev. Fr. Stany Govies. On 19th celebrated by Rev. Fr. Robert Crasta, and on the final day mass was celebrated by Most Rev.
