All-school Retreat Focuses On Immigration
Thank you to Catholic Charities Maine for working with us on the third and final all-school event focused on the issue of immigration. Today was the all-school storytelling retreat. We were honored to have Simane Ibrahim, Parivash Rohani, Nasser Rohani, and Ninette Irabaruta tell their stories.
Each grade heard one speaker. After hearing these personal stories, we gathered in multigrade, small group sessions. Student leaders, many Kairos-trained, led each small group in an examen, a discussion, and a closing gratitude exercise.
Thank you to our wonderful speakers, to Catholic Charities, student leaders, and to the World Language Department and Campus Ministry for creating and hosting this event. Special thanks to Terry Quinn for her leadership throughout this year and last in bringing the community wide read, Amy Bass's book One Goal, to life.
