Junior Retreat: This year our juniors selected one of 4 retreats to attend.  Each retreat had a different theme that drew them into reflection.  Retreat #1 was a pilgrimage retreat to various local churches to explore the beauty and spirituality of those places of worship.  Retreat #2 was an Advent retreat that focused on advent traditions within the church and how we use them to prepare for Christmas.  Retreat #3 was focused on the 3 Theological Virtues of Faith, Hope and Love and who we live these out in our daily lives.  Retreat #4 is centered around Pope Francis’  encyclical, “Laudato Si” and how we experience God in nature and our responsibility in creation.
