Lenten Retreat 2024

The RTPTCA Lenten Retreat 2024 was held on the 9th of March 2024, at Holy Cross Catholic Church, Durham. It was conducted by Rev. Fr. Vimal Backiaraj CP, from Tennessee. Around 25 families (approximately 100 people including children and adults) attended and benefitted from the Retreat.

The Retreat started with a Rosary in the morning, followed by 3 sessions of reflection, meditation and prayers. All sessions included songs from the choir, setting the scene for a very spiritual experience.

There was Way of the Cross with children enacting the Lord’s passion.

The highlight of the day was the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and special prayers with songs by the RTPTCA Choir.
