Konkan, Mar. 14. Don Bosco Animation Centre, Benaulim organized a RETREATAINMENT for working youth and senior college students numbering 45, from all over Goa, on March 10-11, 2012. The primary focus was the study of the YouCat (Youth Catechesis) following the call of Pope Benedict XVI, ``Study this Catechism! This is my heartfelt desire.

The participants focused on: Treasuring the Gift of life; Need of Guidance in one`s life, Love and Relationships, Inner Healing, and Need of a personal relationship with God. With valuable audio-visual aids, the youngsters   reflected on important issues affecting their lives. The group discussions that followed were highly animated with the young voicing their views and clarifying their doubts. Following the sharing, a serious study of the YOUCAT ended with a prayer moment.  
Milgen, a junior college lecturer, who participated said ``aptly named Retreatainment coz it was a retreat full of fun. The first retreat I ever attended which had four value based movies in a row. Cool... ! The prayer and healing session was beautiful... felt a strange calm and inner peace. The group discussions were enriching. It was an amazing experience.``
Frewor, a youth pascher, summed up his experience, ``I really learnt a great deal from the Retreatainment. Looking forward to more such events!``
Retreatainment, a novel concept pioneered by the Salesians from Mumbai, was organised for the first time in Goa, through Don Bosco Animation Centre, Benaulim. This being the Silver Jubilee of the Centre, several spiritual events are on teh anvil, the Retreatainment being one such.
