A retreat was held for the DCC and Saint Francis 8th graders this afternoon, November 19th. They started out their day with lots of pizza and then moved into the gym for the rest of their retreat.

It included Denny Barger, The Starfish Guy, who encouraged the kids to reflect upon themselves. He focused on urging them to be kind to one another and to live in the eye of God. This was a way of reminding them of their relationship with God along with one another. Barger also reminded them of the fact that if we all help one another the world will become a better, more positive place. Overall, it was a great day for everyone.

The retreat was organized by Mrs. Becky Dutra, Campus Minister. Some students from the senior class served as helpers at the event.
