"Do not lose courage, then, if you feel yourselves incapable of knowing and doing all such a special charge demands. Have hope and firm faith in God, for God will help you in everything." -St. Angela
During this retreat, the retreat team focused on self-esteem and self-worth by using St. Angela's quote. The 9th graders bonded over interactive games, talks, and discussions. We heard Emily Nguyen, an 11th grader, talk about her experience with self-esteem, and Ms. Touchet, the 9th grade Religion teacher, talk about modesty. After each talk, the 9th graders separated into small groups and discussed questions regarding their own self-esteem. We also had a special visit from an Ursuline Sister! We hope the girls continue to grow in their faith!! - Emily Nguyen, Mac of 21'
