On July 10, 2014 forty members of OLG’s youth group left for their summer leadership retreat.
On our retreat there are two meetings scheduled each day one in the morning and one in the evening, these meetings are planned and presented by our young adult teams leaders. This year the topics covered were Social Media, Communication and Being Family.
Of course there is always time for prayer, play, and sharing. The retreat is a place for bonding as a Catholic, Pallottine youth group learning to live our faith in today’s world.
On the last day we have a special gathering where we recognize our seniors who will be going into college with a prayer, special song and the presentation of a book of devotional readings for college students.
As we headed home a beautiful feeling of peace came over us and we knew we are truly blessed to have one another, Fr.Peter and to be a part of the UAC, “the love of Christ urges us on”.
