A group of 39 students will be attending the October Encounter with Christ Retreat along with 22 student leaders from February 3-5, according to Beth Barsotti, Campus Ministry. Would you consider writing a note (palanca) to the students you know on the list? This is an opportunity to encourage students and express appreciation for them outside the classroom. Each retreatant will receive an envelope of 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 this link. Please submit palanca to the Campus Ministry office in St. Mary’s. Mark your envelope with “EWC Retreat—(student’s name)” and bring it by Thursday, February 2.
Please forward any questions to Barsotti at email@example.com or x7463.
