Galong message goes out far and wide
While St Clement's has been buzzing with activity at the start of winter, as Fr John relates in his column on the right, our historic monastery and retreat centre has been getting more than its fair share of publicity far and wide, too.
It has featured in spreads in both the Central West Lifestyle Magazine and the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn's newspaper Catholic Voice in the past couple of months.
As rector Fr John Airey told Catholic Voice: "Whatever you come here for, this is an amazing place. The conference facilities are up-to-date, the rooms are excellent and the grounds are a big plus.
"To preserve the Redemptorist presence here is one of my main motivations for coming. The Redemptorists have put a lot of effort into this place, and continue to do so."

It's encouragement to tell your friends about this amazing and valued gift to this region of NSW, the ACT and beyond.

Don't forget, this year the Galong Marian Procession will be held at St Clement's on Sunday, 9 October.
Over many decades, the procession has gathered tens of thousands of Catholics from across Australia. Archbishop Christopher Prowse will be main celebrant at the 11.30am Mass, with the procession to the grotto to begin at 2pm.
There are only a few places left for the next retreat, a six-day guided retreat on 18 to 25 July led by Fr Glenn de Cruz. The August Emmaus Journey retreat with Fr Leo Coffey is booked out.
A Taize retreat, which centres on the prayer, music and tradition of the Taizé community in France, will run from 26 to 28 August. Bookings are still available.
