On 12th October, the Parish Plate was awarded to Helena Schroeder for organizing the parish retreat for the last 20 years. In her own words – ‘’Twenty is plenty’’. A quick calculation shows that during these years, she hosted 500 people during 60 days of retreats in beautiful monasteries and convents around the Netherlands.

Thank you so much Helena and best wishes to Julieta Timane as the new retreat organizer.

The next retreat is planned for 24-26th September 2021, on the theme of the latest encyclical from Pope Francis, Fratelli Tutti.
