On Earth as it is in Heaven - A retreat package for secondary school students

Development and Peace is pleased to announce the launch of the retreat package On Earth as it is in Heaven ! This retreat package invites students to explore their spirituality through the eyes of “God’s Kingdom”. The package has everything you need to organize a retreat, including ice breakers, and four activities and prayers that explore Catholic Social Teaching within the context of the work of Development and Peace.

The words of the Our Father make it clear that the Kingdom of God is to be built here on Earth, and that Kingdom is still far off as hunger, poverty and oppression plague our world. Jesus calls us to pray the words of the Our Father not only with our mouth but with our hands and feet as well. This retreat is designed to help us respond to that call.

The printing of this resource has been sponsored by the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association, and copies have been delivered to all Chaplaincy Leaders and the Heads of the Religious Education Departments of all English Catholic Secondary schools in Ontario. Further copies will be made available for order for Catholic schools outside of Ontario. To order a copy, contact Kathleen Ladouceur, Catholic Schools Program Officer, at kladouceur@devp.org or at 1-800-494-1401 ext. 229.
