A group of 39 students will be attending the March Encounter with Christ Retreat along with 21 student leaders from March 18-20. All faculty and staff are asked to consider writing a note (palanca) to students they may know on the retreat’s attendance list. Palanca present 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 in order to keep it a surprise. A list of students going on the retreat, along with their majors can be found at www.up.edu/campusministry/palanca. Please submit your palanca to the Campus Ministry office in St. Mary’s. Mark your envelope with “Encounter Retreat—(student’s name)” and bring it by Thursday, March 17.
