For the Umatuna Si Yu’os
As part of the Faith Formation program of Santa Barbara Catholic School, SBCS 8th graders attended a retreat facilitated by Religion teacher, Mr. Delson Balance last October 25-26, 2016.
The retreat was held at the Santa Barbara Parish Hall in Dededo.
Focusing on the Mercy Core Value of STEWARDSHIP, the retreat had a three-fold objective:
- Let students develop a habit of reflection and prayer.
- Help students gain valuable insights from Pope Francis’ encyclical, “Laudato Si” and from the life of Venerable Catherine McAuley and
- Foster a positive and healthy class spirit and unity that would enable students to get to know and understand themselves, their peers, God’s creation and hopefully, God, better.
