The Sophomore Retreat and Service Day took place January 30-31, with half the class participating in a retreat while the other half engaged in service activities before switching.
The retreat focused on fostering connections with God and each other, promoting friendship and sisterhood within the sophomore class. Students participated in icebreaker games, small group discussions on sisterhood and how it relates to Christianity, personal reflections on responsibilities to God and each other, team-building activities, Mass, and more.
The service day began with a welcome session and a testimony on service and sisterhood, followed by reflections on the meaning of service. The students participated in service stations, including making sandwiches for those in need, writing letters to the Sisters, and preparing bags for MCA's St. Joseph’s Altar. A talk on intercessory prayer as a form of service and a Rosary session also took place.
Throughout this transformative, two-day experience, classmates deepened their connections with God and each other, fostering a spirit of friendship, service, and sisterhood within their grade.
