May 6 and 7th were days of retreat for the grade 7 and 8 students from St. Joes in Swift Current and Christ the King in Shaunavon. There were 51 students each day. The theme of the retreat was: “I Want to Live Like That” which was the theme song for the day. A retreat team comprising of our Archdiocesan youth director Michelle Braden, three young men and one young lady, facilitated the retreat. The young adults are talented musicians who sang and led the students in prayer, personal faith sharing, and group discussions. Michelle Braden our diocesan youth director led all the sessions with short talks and a number of activities to keep them focused. The Ten Commandments were explored in the light of the use of social media and the team did an excellent job in making these fundamental biblical faith instructions apply to our modern way of living and communicating. As well the students were invited to look at being future youth leaders through programs offered by the Archdiocese. The day ended with one of the young team members sharing their personal Catholic faith journey, a short time for adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and a challenge to focus on one thing they wanted to change in their lives for the better so they can live as gospel people. This decision for change was symbolized by the opportunity for each student to light a vigil light. Lunch for the two days was provided by the generosity of the CWL and K of C of Christ the Redeemer parish. It was truly a day of many blessings!
