Come, say ‘yes’ to Jesus. Bring friends or meet new friends who are on the same journey. We promise you a very invigorating and life- changing weekend. Your friends in Christ, Singles Ministry Salt & Light for Christ Community “I was afraid to open up things before and always tried to hide my emotions. I didn’t even expect that I would have the courage to stand up and volunteer to share God’s love letter to me.” Liz Mifa / SE # 24 “The SE was designed to be an almost 3-day ‘retreat’. I tell you now, they lied to me. Because here I am 5,000 days later still acting out with the Singles Ministry!” Alvin Juban / SE # 3 “It was something that I exactly needed. Dahil sa trabaho ko, baka tinutubuan na ako ng sungay. I felt lighter as I learned to unburden myself of baggage I had been carrying all along.” Mau Cabading III / SE # 25 “So turn from youthful desires and pursue righteousness.” Timothy 2:22 “ Put on the new self, created in God’s way.” Ephesians 4:24 Singles Encounter No. 29 “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

2 What is a Singles Encounter? The Singles Encounter (SE) is a spirit-filled weekend retreat sponsored by the Singles Ministry of the Salt & Light for Christ Community. It focuses on the special and unique needs of single Catholic men and women with the purpose of helping the participants discover a stronger faith in themselves and in others, as well as in God and community. The goals of the weekend are: To help participants strengthen their faith in God; to find peace with themselves; and to learn to truly love those around them. What happens in a SE Weekend? The Singles Encounter is a work and fun weekend designed to bring about a deeper understanding of yourself as a unique individual created by God in His own likeness and image. The retreat will include a blend of teachings, life witnessing from fellow singles, presentations, time for individual reflection, dialogue and group discussions. Under the guidance of a Spiritual Director, the weekend is led by a number of SE graduates. In talks delivered over the course of the weekend, these graduates draw from their life experiences and their relationship with God to speak of our need for God and for others, and to testify to the transforming power of Jesus Christ. Before and after each talk, participants have the opportunity to reflect, share and pray. Will I sit and pray all throughout this retreat? Prayer and individual reflection will be an important part of the retreat. Time will also be spent socializing, meeting new friends, and renewing your Catholic faith thru the activities during the SE weekend. Why should I go on a retreat? It might just be the best thing you will ever do … no joke! Not only does the SE weekend offer a chance to look at your relationship with God, it’s a time to relax, have fun, meet people and unload the pressures and stress in your life. It really is a great opportunity and a life-changing experience. Who can attend the SE? All single Catholic young men and women, never been married, at least 21 years old. This is something for everyone regardless of age or status in life. How much does the weekend cost? The registration fee is P per person.

For the first time in my life, I felt God’s healing touch.” Jen Distor / SE # 24 “I had just transferred to a new job and had issues again since it was more demanding and I was getting insecure again if I could cope.
