Italy – Over 300 people participate in first Primary ADMA retreat in Turin
Castelnuovo Don Bosco, Italy - September 18, 2022 - The annual journey of the Turin Primary ADMA began with the first retreat at Colle Don Bosco where families from Piedmont and Liguria gathered. More than 300 people attended and many children and young people were also present; they spent Sunday alternating play and prayer under the careful guidance of the many animators. Guided by Fr Alejandro Guevara, ADMA's World Spiritual Animator, and Fr Roberto Carelli, the day developed into the various moments of formative and spiritual growth: catechesis, Reconciliation, adoration, rosary, sharing, and the Eucharist. This year's theme is the starting point of every Christian's life: love, that is, how to experience the concrete and sensitive love of God and for God and, consequently, love for others. Each person was created by God's Love and as St. Augustine says, "You made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you." The monthly commitment is to trust God by praying "Lord, help me to experience your love as a Father."
