The junior class became closer and forgot
about all of their w orries os they prayed and
worshiped together. They learned a lot more
about their faith. Responsibility and commitment
to themselves and to their classmates is another
thing that the youth minister of St. Leos taught
The juniors played all different kinds of
games throughout the day that involved a lot
of teamwork and determination. Playing these
games was a great way to get people together
who normally do not talk to each other. When
they worked together it got them talking and
using each others strengths and weaknesses.
"I thought it was a really good experience
playing games with everyone, I felt like we
all bonded as a class rather than staying
with our normal group of friends," said Abby
Another way that the juniors came together
as one was singing a song called “We are
the Beggars.” Everyone was clapping and
singing as loud as they could. They also had
a competition. It was the girls against the guys
to see who could sing the loudest. This got
everyone to participate in the song and have
a lot of fun at the same time. The song was
stuck in every one s head for a while
"I loved singing because at first everyone
was singing really soft but by about the fourth
time we sang it everyone was belting it out and
dancing and clapping to the beat of the song,"
said junior M ike Urban.
o Overall it was a very successful and fun day
for everyone who attended the retreat.
