For ensuring Strategic Planning for the KSSS’ Jubilee Year, a series of monthly retreats was planned and started on January 15, 2013 to help in determining where the organization is heading over the next year or years; how it’s going to get there and how it’ll know if it got there or not. The session was headed by Dr. Haridas V.R, Environmental Expert, Caritas India. The participants included Fr. Michael Vettickat (Director KSSS), Fr. Bins Chethalil (Asst. Secretary), Sr. Linet (Staff Co-ordinator), office staff, regional coordinators and Central animators. The session focused on phase level planning for the Jubilee Year. The topics visited comprised
