The evenings were spent in Adoration where the brothers were encouraged to allow Jesus to touch and work in different aspects of their life.

Retreat- Jesus and Mary College

COFE organised a stay-in retreat for the students of Jesus and Mary College from the 25th- 27th October, 2013. The first evening focussed on God's Love. During the Adoration the students were given cut-outs of homes to write all their family problems in. They were encouraged to leave their homes with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

The second day was a day of introspection. The students got a chance to take a closer look into their lives. Priests were available for Confession and Counselling was arranged for the benefit of those who were interested. The day ended with Adoration focussing primarily on Healing of Wounds and Forgiveness.

On the third day, the students prayed for an infilling of the Holy Spirit.

After the retreat, almost all the students testified to being able to forgive at least one person who had hurt them. A number of them had received physical and emotional healing. A lot of them shared that they were going back with a new perspective on God and His Love.

COFE hopes to have follow up Bible Study classes in the month of January with the students.
