Freshmen Retreat


Freshmen retreat this year dealt with how we encounter God in our lives and what God means to us. There was a session on prayer and spending some quiet time before the Blessed Sacrament. Fr. John and Fr. Dan led the retreat and were helped by Mr. Maliszewski and Coach Spooner. A spirited alum, Jacob Idra gave an inspiring presentation of his experience of sacrificing for the sake of the good of the community while here at Mount Michael. The students enjoyed a relaxed meal of pulled pork, corn on the cob, potato chips, lettuce salad and of course banana bars. It was a GREAT spiritual day for the class of 2023.
