Advent retreat in Belize

The SCNs in
Belize gathered in Belize City this weekend to host an Advent retreat with the
theme of “Fill your Cup”. Seven young women participated. The retreat weekend
included prayer time, input sessions on “Emptying your cup”, “Filling your cup”
and Sharing your cup” and space for reflection and journaling. Participants
reflected on the obstacles in their cup of life that needed to be let go, what
desires and yearnings were bubbling up to fill their cup of life, and what
talents and gifts were in their cup of life that they could share with others.
Saturday afternoon, the women prepared a gift package and card for two Senior
Citizens and then visited them in their homes to share their time and presence
with them and to share stories. The retreatants then returned to process the
learnings from this encounter. The retreat ended Sunday morning with a blessing
ritual where each participant received a decorated coffee cup and a tea bag
with an inspirational biblical quote to take home. All attended Sunday morning
mass at St. Martin de Porres parish in Belize City before departure.
