On Wednesday, October 26th, the 8th Graders spent their retreat day reflecting on the theme of “Gift of Self.” Keynote speaker, Mary Bielski of Dumb Ox Ministries, opened the day with a dynamic talk inspiring the girls to reflect upon God’s love for them, to discover the gifts that God has given them, and challenged them to use those gifts in service to others. Students also experienced interactive breakout presentations on True Friendship, Seeing Beauty in Our Friends, Being Loved, and on fostering good communication and conflict resolution skills. Parents joined students for Mass at St. Rita Church, followed by lunch.
