RETREAT PERMISSION FORM 2017 – pdf Document
What to Expect – A weekend to relax and hangout with one another. WARNING: There will be some sharing, no one will be forced J We will take time to reflect on who we are as individuals, what that means for our relationships with others, and how to be a positive force and active participant in an authentic community AND OF COURSE some time to find God in all of the CHAOS of exploring these topics! There will be time for prayer, reflection, and the sacraments (If we find a priest to come along) BUT ALSO time for the important things like free time to enjoy the campus & the hopefully beautiful spring weather, s’mores & the campfire, and all sorts of other games & fun nonsense!
What to Bring Along – Comfy clothes, tennis shoes, pajamas, toiletries, a journal, anything you need for prayer, any medications, a friend (maybe make sure they are registered first…).
What NOT to Bring Along – Drugs, alcohol, power tools, prom dresses, or a bad attitude.
I am so excited to spend time with all of you this weekend and CANNOT WAIT for all the shenanigans!
