The morning prayer took the theme of gratitude, based mainly on the words of David Steindl-Rast. This led to a process where the Brothers met on a one-to-one basis, sharing two affirmations that they could give to the others in the group, and identifying one dimension of their own lives that they wanted to further work on.
The second session invited the Brothers to write a letter to themselves where they listed some commitments that they wanted to make in the area of spiritual growth and human development. These letters were sealed, and will be returned to the Brothers in three-months time.
At the conclusion of the second session each of the participants on the Orientation Programme was presented with a certificate to attest to their successful completion of the OP. On the reverse side of the certificate was a detailed list of the courses and the hours for each course.
