First-year seminarian E.J. Ibarra tells of his time on placement at an aged care facility. He recounts not only the challenging moments but also lessons learned and graces gained.
Recently the fifth year seminarians undertook the 30 day Ignatian Spiritual Exercises. This is no ordinary retreat, in fact as the name suggests, it is meant to test, strengthen and build up the spiritual life of whoever undertakes it. As Anthony Beltrame reports it was a time of many blessing and great closeness to our Lord.
