However, the Kayakers’ biggest thrill came from their spectacular performance at the International Rowing Centre. They won 15 gold, 2 silver and 3 bronze medals and enjoyed their trip to Australia so much they extended their visit. As well, the Sisters of Mary who run Mount Schoenstatt Retreat Centre won’t forget their international visitors in a hurry; their guests presented them with one of their medals in appreciation for the hospitality extended to them.
Carols at the College
International Sporting Stars stay at Mount Schoenstatt Recently Mount Schoenstatt Retreat Centre in Fairlight Road Mulgoa played host to some unusual guests, 15 Ukrainian Kayakers who were taking part in the World Masters Games. The Kayakers found out about the Retreat Centre via the Internet and after emails back and forth, a book-
ing was made for the Home of Light, a self catering facility on the edge of the bush in the valley behind the Mount Schoenstatt Shrine. The Kayakers navigated their way, late at night, from the international airport and despite some early misunderstandings due to language problems, including the meaning of self catering; their stay was a big success. They were thrilled to have kangaroos, literally ‘on their doorstep’.
