This program provided an opportunity for our young priests to know them better through their personal sharing and evaluation. These kind of sharing among themselves were very much encouraging and appreciated. It is an interiorizing experience for them. Most of them expressed their ministerial satisfaction. The sharing also brought out the challenges that they are facing in their lives.
