Skiing and The Holy Spirit

This year marked our 28th Ski Retreat! Each retreat has it's own joys and trials; and each retreat moves us closer to Christ.

We had 86 youth/adults who trekked up the mountain, so a glitch or two was expected. There was a fair amount of teen drama and orneriness; but the real glitch was the snow storm that dumped 24 inches on us. The buses got stuck, someone fell on the ice and someone bruised a rib! We simply hiked the last 1/4 mile to the lodge; got an x-ray and dolled out the ibuprofen. (Good thing we had 2 nurses & an EMT with us!) The snow resulted in a change of schedule, so instead of skiing that day, we went tubing instead! The real purpose for the retreat, are the evenings, and they were powerful! An Adoration Flash Mob Arrangement, Mass, teaching skits and sharing. Each evening bringing us closer to Christ. The last night we do what we call, Four Corners. The Holy Spirit flowed as free as the tears and Fr. Don graciously hearing confessions until 12:30 am.

Fr. Ted had a homily this week about being "a fool for Christ". Hmmm, 7,000 bierocks to raise money for the trip, the headaches, the set-up, clean-up and all the planning involved every year; I think Dave, along with all the fantastic adult leaders who help us, are well qualified for that title...and when we did our retreat review, we all's definitely worth it!                                                                    Pam Vainer, DRE - 9th - Adult
