RE: Annual Clergy Retreat
Dear brothers in the priesthood:
As agreed during the clergy meeting, the clergy retreat for the year 2015 will be a personal directed retreat at the Sacred Heart Novitiate in Novaliches, Quezon City under the direction of Father Jun Bugtas, SJ. Each batch begins in the evening of Day One and ends after lunch on Day Eight. Here are the batch schedules:
August 24 to 31
September 1 to 8
September 10 to 17
September 21 to 28
Please inform the Chancery before June 30, 2015 regarding your chosen retreat schedule. Kindly take into consideration the sacramental needs of the parish during your spiritual retreat such that you coordinate with the priests in the neighboring parishes or Catholic schools so that you do not join the same retreat batch and the parish schedule may be easily attended to in your absence.
The obligation of making an annual spiritual retreat binds all priests as indicated in Canon 276 par.2 # 4 of the Code of Canon Law. This retreat is obligatory for all diocesan priests. Religious priests ministering within the archdiocese are most welcome to join any of the batches.
The clergy who cannot join any of the aforementioned retreat groups must seek the permission of the Local Ordinary.
Oremus pro invicem.
