The junior high retreat was held on Thursday, November 21.   The theme of the retreat was "We Are One Body" and was based on 1 Corinthians 12:12-27.  The day included skits, prayer, music, group activities, relays, and speakers.  Mr. Ron Broxson, Beckman junior high teacher, served as M.C. and retreat speaker.   Fr. Bang Tran of Divine Word Seminary, was the celebrant for the retreat Mass and also gave a personal witness after Mass to the retreat participants.  Several juniors served as small group leaders. Students in the junior high exploratory class, Service Leadership,  were involved in background preparations for the retreat and served in various roles at the retreat and Mass.To close the retreat, participants wrote down on a large commitment banner one way they plan to build up unity within their class, family, school, and community.  This banner will hang in the hallway to serve as a reminder that "We Are One Body" and when one member suffers, we all suffer.
