Fr. Michael Mireau Travelling Cross Retreat Day

Fr. Michael Mireau Travelling Cross Retreat Day

St. Leo Staff and Student community celebrated Fr. Michael Mireau with a full day retreat. We began our day with a celebration led by the students and Father Dean. Our Gospel was done Father Catfish style with student actors and readers acting out the Gospel. Our celebration was followed by a variety of activity stations focused on the theme, God is Love; He forgives us for our sins. Stations included the following:

 Reconciliation Station: consisted of conversations about reconciliation with an opportunity for students to experience reconciliation; led by Fathers Dean, Julian, and Antonio.

 Praying in Colour Station:  led by our Art Consultant Patricia Krumins students practiced the Praying in Colour techniques shared.

 Fr. Michael Mireau Cross Station:   At this station our students could learn more about the details of Fr. Michael Mireau's cross; led by Sandra Talarico, she explained it's design, significance and facts about the teacher who built it and the journey of the cross over the past 2 years.

 In Touch with Creation Stations:  Teachers led students through a variety of stations such as: a sensory scavenger hunt to experience God's creation;  a musical experience with Ms. Sharrock; St. Leo's Music teacher;  they also read the story,  "Nails in the Fence" and completed an activity about forgiveness; and finally, all students made their own version of the Fr. Michael Mireau Cross using a variety of beads; each taking home their very own cross.

 We were blessed with a day made special by our many guests and embraced with the Spirit of Fr. Michael Mireau. True to his name and personal style, students experienced plenty of light hearted fun, with plenty of discussions about the life of Christ with much inspiration as we all continue our own personal journey closer to God.  The day was filled with love, reflection and forgiveness as we focused on the theme, God is Love; He forgives us for our sins.
