Report Oasis Encounter September 3, 2017.

Sunday, 3 September was a day off for the OASIS participants, so the brothers filled their day with different activities. Some remained in the Sisters convent where the OASIS is taking place, others went for a walk around the city of Maastricht including De Beyaart while the rest went to Rotterdam.

This day off was necessary as it allowed participants to refresh their minds after a week full of solemn exercises and a deep reflective journey with our founders. For those who took a walk around the city of Maastricht, it was an added advantage to recall some of the significant landmarks of our founders. 

Participants had the choice of attending Sunday mass at any convenient parish church. Towards evening brothers were together again at the  OASIS centre for  dinner and to get ready again for another full week of activities.  Many brothers shared informally their experiences of the week end. They acknowledged that  it helped them to fresh their brains for the rest of the program.

During supper,  Bro. Guido introduced Bro. Jan Koopen who would assist with translation between English ≤ Bahasa Indonesia and Bahasa Indonesia ≥ English for the coming two weeks. He will work together with brothers Guido Sukarman and Theodorus Suwaryanto to help the participants from Indonesia understand better what is going on during the OASIS.
