Grade 8 Faith Retreats at Catholic Central


Catholic Central took time this past week to welcome future Comets to our family. From October 21 - October 25, CCH Campus Ministry extends a warm welcome to over 120 Gr. 8 students from three of our feeder schools to partcipate in a half day retreat. Students are coming from Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Immaculate Conception, and St. Angela. The retreat, the first of its kind at the school, included fun and inter-active ice breaker activities, time for personal reflection from both the Gr. 8s and CCH students, and Liturgy of the Word lead by the Gr. 8 students in conjunction with Campus Ministry. Lunch is also provided courtesy of the Culinary Arts class at CCH. Positive comments were received by both the Gr. 8 class and teaching staff. Most students shared with Campus Ministry that they felt like they were at home while here at CCH. Plans are already underway to make this an annual event for our future Comets!
