The Retreat Team's theme for this school year is "We Will Not Be Shaken", with the following Bible verse: "I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken." -Psalm 16:8. Not only does the retreat team help with retreats at St. Charles Catholic, but they also go out into the River Parishes to our parochial feeder schools and perform retreats for their middle school students. Our team truly enjoys working with the younger students in our area and helping them grow closer to Christ.
"Every year the retreat team brings so much energy and excitement to our program. Each group throughout the years has brought something different to the retreat team and left their mark on our school and community. The class of 2021's retreat team is no different! We started meeting over the summer through Google Meet and had the entire student retreat day planned after two meetings. Normally student retreat day takes an entire summer of planning and coordination all over St. John Parish. However, because of the Covid-19 restrictions, we were tasked with facilitating our student retreats on SCC's campus. I'm so incredibly proud of the attention to detail and patience this year's retreat team has put towards ministering to our Comets! I'm praying that they are able to experience more of the traditional events that retreat team members have had in the past." -Retreat Coordinator, Mrs.Poche.
