Birmingham Catholic Partnership Retreat Day - 10 July 2013

On Wednesday 10 July, I accompanied 4 Year 8 students to Don Bosco House in Coleshill for a Birmingham Catholic Partnership retreat day. 7 secondary schools were involved in the event, which was on the theme of ‘No matter how stranded you feel, God is always there for you'. Students and staff had the opportunity to dress as pirates during the day, and the activities were loosely based around being on a desert island. The activities made students think about their relationship with God and showed them that they were never alone as God was always there.

The day finished with reflection time and a service based on the Footprints prayer. Thank you to the Year 8 students involved: Shenika, Lauren, Tommy and Jayden.
