Circular 2016-8: Annual Retreat of Priests

January 13, 2016

Circular 2016-8

Re: Annual Retreat of Priests

Reverend Fathers:

In line with our collective decision during the monthly meeting of the clergy last January 8, we have made arrangements for a preached retreat for 2016.  There will be two batches of retreats, that is, August 22 to 26 and August 29 to September 2, 2016 at the Good Shepherd Spiritual Center in Sumulong Highway, Antipolo City. Msgr. Gerry Santos, professor of moral theology at the Mary Help of Christians Theology Seminary, has kindly agreed to facilitate both retreat groups.

In choosing the retreat batch that you wish to join, please confer with the priests of the parish and the neighboring parishes or schools, so that the sacramental needs of the parish may be attended to while you are on retreat.

Kindly contact the Chancery and signify the batch of your choice before March 1, 2016.

Let me take this occasion to remind you dear brothers that the Code of Canon Law imposes upon every cleric the duty to make a yearly spiritual retreat (CIC Canon 276) as one of the means to grow in piety. The annual spiritual retreat binds all of us in conscience.

Thank you. Oremus pro invicem.

Sincerely yours,



Archbishop of Lingayen Dagupan
