Passionately Yours.......

The JY families facilitator group in Bangalore organized a 4 day retreat for families from 28th April to 1st May at Snehadaan, a facility owned by the Camillus fathers at Carmalaram. The retreat was lead by Elvis Kottooran and team. 30 families along with their children attended this growth retreat. Volunteers were present to take care of the children on all the 4 days.

The retreat stressed on the plan, God has for families and challenged individuals to review their submission to the will of God and the commitment to love their spouses as Christ loved. The families were blessed to have Elvis and Priya who have been a faithful witness, living a life of radical commitment to the invitation of Christ to deny oneself, take up the cross and follow Him.

The attendees returned home with a deeply convinced about the need to reform their lives and to renew their commitment to the vocation of married life. They also discussed the need for a parallel system to educate their children and have setup a team to explore the different possibilities.
