It takes a village...
or at least a bunch of students to make a retreat into something really special. May 4-6 was the Student Spring Retreat at St. Benedict Lodge in McKenzie Bridge. With over 45 students in attendance it took many hands to keep everything running smoothly.
The new Peer Ministers for 2018-19, along with student leadership team and FOCUS team planned and ran the retreat. This year's theme was Fearless. There were student-led talks on Fear, Healing, Salvation, Foot Prints, and Moving On. After each talk the students broke out into small groups lead by their peers.
The students were fed by Kevin and Celismarie Stevens. Keven and Celismarie will be moving to Wisconsin this summer, as Kevin graduates from the UO Law School this month. They wanted to give back to Newman by cooking for everyone at the retreat.
