Save the Date: Fall Retreat Scheduled!

The planning retreat for the 2017-2018 school year has been scheduled.  We will be returning to Shalom Farm the end of July for our second annual retreat.  This year, the Executive Board will have a two day retreat, while the Core Team will join the Executive Board for the second day.

The retreat will begin at 5pm, with supper, at Shalom Hill Farm (42194 County Rd 3, Windom, MN 56101) on Friday, July 28 for the Executive Board and mentors. It will be a full evening and Saturday morning of activities. Core Team members should arrive at Shalom Hill Farm between 2p and 3p on Saturday afternoon.   The following 24 hours will be busy, but filled with faith, food, and fun as we put together the plans for the 2017-2018 year.  

Last year, we stayed in the Commons Retreat Center.  This year, we will be staying in the Farmhouse.  This building is not air conditioned.  Please feel free to bring fans.

Here is what you will need to bring with you:

1.  Love of Christ and a desire to spread His Kingdom on campus
2.  Rosary, journal, Bible or other items you use for personal prayer time
3.  Your small group plan for next year (subject, partner, day/time)
4.  Sense of humor and sense of purpose :)
5.  Clothing suitable for both inside and outside, and having a roommate at night.
6.  Appetite, spiritual as well as physical

We will, again, have the opportunity for Adoration, Reconciliation and Mass during the retreat, with Saturday's supper at a special location near and dear to my heart.

Driving directions to Shalom Hill Farm can be found HERE

Please RSVP to Becki to confirm your attendance.  There wasn't a date everyone could make, but this was the weekend that had the most availability.

Enjoy your summer and see you before you know it!
