Once a year, The Lay Centre resident community leaves the city of Rome for a weekend spiritual retreat. This year, we went to the Centro Ad Gentes, a beautiful countryside spot by Lake Nemi, which belongs to the Society of the Divine Word. Jesuit Father Felix Körner guided our meditations and presided at Mass, helping us to strengthen bonds of friendship and community prayer. Spending time together is always a good way to start the academic year!
