For the second year, Christ the Living Vine held a Parish Lenten retreat on Holy Monday. This was led by Emeritus Archbishop Barry Hickey. All who attended felt it was a beautiful way to enter into the experience of Holy Week more deeply. Thanks to Archbishop Hickey for travelling to Australind and to the parish team involved in the preparations. Theme for the retreat was Blessed are the Merciful for they will receive Mercy [Matt 5:7].
