It was a beautiful way to start off our Holy Week experience. Maria Ward kicked off the retreat with a look at Palm Sunday. My presentations included an in-depth look at Holy Thursday, Good Friday, the Easter Vigil, and the Sacraments of Initiation. Maria then wrapped things up with a look at how we can effectively celebrate the Easter season all 50 days.
I am grateful to all of the young folks who gave up their weekend to be part of this retreat experience. The retreat was held at the Ramkota Hotel in Casper, Wyoming. While it is not as good as having the gathering at a retreat center, we made it work out quite well. At the end of the retreat one thing was clear. We need to keep up our endeavors to serve the needs of the young Church.
Have a blessed Holy Week!
