During the retreat various talks were given for adults; directed by Mons. Ramón Albino Guzmán with Mr. Miguel Calzada and for young people, Dr. Yaritza Echevarría Vilarrubia. All with the aim of sharing the word of God in koinonía. The day ended with a Eucharistic celebration and a prayer for the healing of the sick in the multipurpose of the MIR Foundation, celebrated by Archbishop Ramón Albino Guzmán, priests and celebrants.
