Annual MMP Retreat for Oceania in 2020

The Annual Retreat for the MMP in Oceania for 2020 was to have been held on 17 – 21 August 2020 at St Clement’s (Redemptorist) Retreat Centre at GALONG (near Yass) in NSW.

Initially we were expecting about 90 people to join in (similar to last year), then because of the social distancing requirements forced on us by the Covid-19 pandemic, we had to cut the retreat back to just 25. Then, because of the rapid spread of the virus in Victoria and (to a lesser extent) in NSW in recent weeks and the risk posed to staff and retreat attendees, the retreat (in its usual format) was cancelled.

It was REPLACED by a much smaller retreat – for just 5 priests – in the Sydney suburb of Carlton.

To enable other priests, all the laity who had registered for the retreat this year, and all other MMP members (especially those in Victoria who are in our payers) to participate, we (for the first time) LIVE STREAMED all of the key events in the Retreat Program.

The retreat ran from Monday 17 August to Friday 21 August 2020.
