During the retreat, participants were able to nurture their spiritual lives through opportunities of prayer, meditation, Liturgy of the Hours and the Mass, along with building community with each other. Archbishop Vigneron's main message of the retreat was the five virtues clergy should seek to share with Jesus in order to be better men of God and shepherds of their flocks.
