The Athlete’s Retreat 2018

A group of Chaldean Catholic men spent the weekend at Whispering Winds Catholic Campground for the Athlete’s Retreat done by St. Peter’s Diocese. The retreat took place on the weekend of March 5, 2018. Fr. Simon Esshaki led talks and discussions about how to see the Christian faith from an athlete’s perspective and how to work toward winning the battles of the spiritual life. The men hiked in the mountains, did other physical exercises, and grew closer to God and one another through prayer and discussions. There was a lot of wisdom and experiences shared during the weekend.
