A group of 36 students will be attending the March Encounter with Christ Retreat along with 23 student leaders, March 21-23, according to Beth Barsotti, campus ministry. Faculty and staff members are asked to consider writing a note (“palanca”) to students they may know on the retreat list. 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 can be found at www.up.edu/campusministry/palanca. Please submit your palanca to the campus ministry office in the Pilot House or St. Mary’s Student Center. Mark your envelope with “Encounter Retreat—(student’s name)” and bring it by Thursday, March 20. For more information contact Barsotti at firstname.lastname@example.org or 7463.
