Encounter 2017: Junior/Senior Weekend Retreat

Over the long weekend in March, juniors and seniors participated in the Encounter, a weekend overnight retreat, geared towards building closer relationships with one another and with God. Through numerous activities run by the Peer Ministry course and seniors who attended the retreat last year, participants spent time reflecting inwardly on their own relationships. While sleeping at school may not seem like the most comfortable, clear out the desks and add a few air mattresses and you have a nice sleeping space! It was a unique experience to watch everyone change as the weekend went on, especially in the way they reacted to one another and interacted with one another. Now, it’s time to plan for the Ohana, our freshman/sophomore retreat!
