I have attended many other spiritual retreat programs but never have I been so moved and spiritually uplifted as with this WATCH program. This program was different. The addition of the visual effect of slides with music and meditations along with the different paraliturgies enhanced the talks and the whole experience. I will never be the same and I came away with a deeper understanding and commitment to my faith and the Church.

I felt that I came home during the WATCH weekend. I have never experienced the love, caring and community anywhere. I was relaxed and allowed the Holy Spirit to enter into my life in a powerful way. We are blessed to have this program in our parish.
The WATCH weekend was the best weekend of my life! It was a weekend of learning, searching and finding. A weekend of inspiration and forgiving. A weekend of joy, love and caring. It brought me closer to God, closer to my fellow parishioners and closer to the Church. It has called me to action.

WATCH gave me community and a stronger relationship with Jesus. I met some wonderful friends of the heart that I will treasure always when I see them at mass on Sunday or work on a church activity with them, there will always be a special bond between us.
It was an incredible, awesome, heart-moving experience I will never forget. It touched me intellectually, spiritually and physically. I was totally bowled over and eager to go and share the good news of Jesus with everyone.
