My time at Madonna House was when I learned to truly live the Gospel. Through weekly formation time I learned foundational teachings of the Church, and through community life those teachings came alive. The life of prayer and Sacraments helped me fall in love with Jesus. I learned what it meant to love God, and my neighbour through repeatedly doing the “duty of the moment”. I would highly recommend a Catholic Gap Year at Madonna House.
