SMB Retreat Comes to Red Deer

About 30 brothers gathered on Saturday, January 30, 2016 at the Sacred Heart Parish, Red Deer, Alberta, Canada for the SMB (Sarap Maging Brother or “It’s Great to be a Brother”) Retreat for men. They came from all parts of Canada, including Red Reer, Ponoka, Lacombe, Camrose, Sylvan Lake, Edmonton and Calgary.


It was a relatively cold morning (with the temperature around -10 C) but the warmth of the welcome from the hosts from Red Deer was felt almost immediately. A joint group from Calgary and Edmonton formed the service team with Rosco Doromal, Servants of the Lord (SOLD) Canada National Coordinator, leading the retreat. The team included George Fournier, CFC Canada National Family Ministries Head, Adel Amar, SOLD Calgary Area Coordinator, Nonie Ramos, CFC Youth Calgary Area Coordinator, and Jojo Molina, CFC Central Alberta Mission Head.


The men started the retreat with a powerful worship led by CFC Red Deer Head Gerry Saavedra, after which four very inspirational pastoral talks, lively games and intimate discussion groups followed.


The activities and the very palpable spirit of openness that prevailed throughout the retreat brought forth powerful expressions of faith from the men present. Although it was a retreat for SOLD members, some women attended with their husbands.


They had a teaching session with Sally Doromal, incoming HOLD Canada National Coordinator. The two groups converged at the venue at the end of the retreat to close the day with a joyful joint praise fest.
