Participants with Fr. Clarence

The Catholic Lawyers Society had its annual retreat recently from 9-11 August 2013 at the Marist Brothers Champagnat Youth Centre over the Hari Raya Aidilfitri long weekend.

The theme of the retreat was Mark 6:31 - 'Come away to some lonely place all by yourselves and rest for a while' and featured Fr. Clarence Devadass as our retreat master.

Over the course of the retreat, we participated in daily Mass and Holy Hour/Adoration. Fr. Clarence provided us guided questions for reflection which we then brought into silent prayer with the Lord at the retreat centre and along the beach nearby. We were challenged to not only think of philosophical or abstract statements but small, concrete steps in what we needed to renounce to draw closer to God and to bring the transfiguration experience into our daily lives, among others.

In summary, the CLS Retreat afforded us the invaluable opportunity of peace and quiet away from the busy city to better listen to the voice of God. By doing so, we would be able to lead more fruitful lives in His service.
