Junior retreat 2018

The 2018 Junior Retreat consisted of a trip to the Sisters of Mercy facility next door to Mercy to give the juniors a day of reflection, relaxation, and rejuvenation. The girls were broken up into groups and rotated through four different stations. Each station focused on a different method that would help the girls find a way to be closer to God, including yoga, walking through nature, coloring, and various forms of meditation. After a lunch break, the girls settled in for a presentation by guest speaker Mary Wilkerson, covering the role of God in friendships and romantic relationships. Whether it was the sight of beautiful fall leaves or the impact of motivational words, the Junior Retreat was intended to open the hearts of the juniors to God. Photos by Lauren Krill
