Over the weekend of March 23-25, a group of 37 students and 22 student leaders will be on the Encounter with Christ (EWC) Retreat. All faculty and staff are asked to consider writing a note (palanca) to students they may know on the attendance 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, which will help 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 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, March 22.
Please send any questions to Annie Boyle at firstname.lastname@example.org or x7889.
