My First MYP Retreat

By Geanine L:

On Friday, February 4, I went with the Module Youth Program on their retreat weekend. This was my first experience being away with the group, and my brother’s last. We were paired 2 girls or 2 boys to a room at St. Josaphat’s Retreat House in Glen Cove, NY. There were about 14 of us who enjoyed 5 delicious meals, games, and reflective sessions. I was on the prayer committee, which was responsible for morning and evening prayers. The prayer said on the bus ride home was even written by me. We returned on Sunday, February 6 having made new friends and new connections with God. I look forward to it again next year – especially since it was a time of no homework or parents! – Only kidding!
