A group of 37 students will be attending the October Encounter with Christ Retreat along with 23 student leaders from October 28-30, according to Beth Barsotti, Campus Ministry. Faculty and staff are asked to consider writing a note (palanca) to students they may know on the retreat. This is an opportunity to encourage students and express appreciation for them outside the classroom. Each retreatant will receive an envelope of surprise palanca. Please do not discuss this concept with students to keep it a surprise.
A list of those going on the retreat, along with their majors, can be found at https://www1.up.edu/campusministry/palanca/. Please submit your palanca to the Campus Ministry office in St. Mary’s. Mark your envelope with “EWC Retreat—(student’s name)” and bring it by Thursday, October 27.
Please forward any questions to Barsotti at x7463 or email@example.com.
