Here are some of the things we experienced last weekend:
- Three talks made by event staff, inviting us to think about the topics of orientation, disorientation, and reorientation while we journey toward God as True North.
- Vibrant worship, thanks to our friends Sarah and Andrew in the Diocese of Central Pennsylvania!
- Large group games (including a scattergories-themed scavenger hunt in our cabins!)
- Small group reflections led by adult leaders
- A "Spiritual Practice Scavenger Hunt" during which youth experienced different prayer practices stationed around the camp. Practices included walking a labyrinth, writing psalms, lectio divina, confession and reconciliation, and much more!
We would like to give a great big thanks to the youth groups from St. Thomas Church, Whitemarsh, and Christ Church, Media, for joining us on this retreat! We would also like to give a big thank-you to Canon Lucy Amerman and Tommy Thompson for leading us in our closing Eucharist service on Sunday.
Overall, we had a fantastic weekend! Check out more photos from the retreat on our Facebook page. We will be posting more throughout the week, as they come in!
We hope you will join us as we return to NorthBay for our Province III Sr. High Retreat, March 4-6, 2016! Look for more information on this retreat soon!
