Welcome to 2015
Numbers are building for our first retreats of 2015. If you are interested, there is still time to book in.
Three retreats will be presented in February: Restore My Spirit, for singers, instrumentalists and all interested in music for liturgy, led by liturgist Sr Carmel Pilcher and Sr Margaret Cusack (6-8 February), Eat, Pray, Paint, a weekend of fellowship, prayer and sharing for artists led by renowned Canberra iconographer Sue Orchison (13-15 February), and a six-day retreat presented by one of Australia’s foremost biblical scholars Fr Michael Fallon (16-23 February).
St Clement’s Redemptorist Retreat and Conference Centre this year offers a wide range of retreats with themes to help anyone seeking spiritual growth.

We welcome Fr Nixon as new Redemptorist Provincial
Fr Pat Corbett, whom many know from his time at Galong, has ended his term as Provincial. We thank him for his dedicated service and pray that he will be greatly blessed in his next phase of life.
We welcome Fr Edmond Nixon as Provincial to the newly formed Province of Oceania. We wish him an abundantly fruitful ministry.
Did you know?
The tradition of hospitality to all began at Galong when Irish transportee Edward 'Ned' Ryan settled there in the late 1820s. The Ryans introduced new forms of agricultural practice and these resulted in wealth and success for them and the wider community. Through the will of Ned’s son John Nagle Ryan, the property was passed onto the Redemptorist Congregation who established a monastery and a juvenate named for St Clement Hofbauer (1751-1820), in 1918.
