Circular 2012-14: Annual Clergy Retreat
Memorial of Saint Anselm, Bishop and Doctor
RE: Annual Clergy Retreat
My dear brother priests:
Please be informed that the annual clergy retreat for the diocesan and religious priests ministering in the Archdiocese of Lingayen Dagupan will be held on July 31 to August 4, 2012 at the Betania Retreat House in Tagaytay City. Needless to say, this spiritual formation activity is an obligation imposed on us by the Church and therefore must be fulfilled with utmost diligence and fidelity.
A bus will transport all of us to the retreat venue leaving the Saint John Cathedral in Dagupan City at 7:00 am on July 31. The same bus will bring us back to Pangasinan on August 4 after breakfast.
As you know by experience, annual clergy retreats are also grace filled occasions for strengthening our fraternal communion in our holy vocation. I am sending out this notice ahead of time so that the parish personnel can block off the dates in your book of appointments even now.
Thank you for the steadfast kindness.
