Participants of the retreat had chance to go to the sacrament of penance and talk personally with Fr. Adam on the different topics. We would like to thank you very much, Father Adam for your time dedicated to us and the word of God addressed to us. Special thanks to Fr. Andrzej, who dedicated himself with great devotion and gave to us room and board. Also, we would like to thank to all our Benefactors of the John Paul II Foundation; thanks to them we can participate in a scholarship program, of which the spiritual and religious formation is an important part.We returned to Lublin, trusting that Jesus Christ is and will always be the Lord of our life. Now we are no longer afraid to continue our path, for we are sure that God will help us in our journey of life.
