Life Lessions for Senior Girls on Retreat

image1

Last week the EC senior girls began their last school retreat with a bonfire and dinner, followed by Eucharistic adoration and a fun-filled evening. Also during the retreat, the girls participated in an apostolic outreach project.  They helped an elderly couple, both battling cancer and recovering from recent heart attacks.  Our girls helped to clean their yard and move some items in the couple’s house.  The woman and her husband were very grateful for the help they received around the house doing work they could not do for themselves. After the service project, the senior girls asked the woman for some life advice. She told them: “Try to keep in mind everything your parents and teachers do for you, day in and day out.  Realize how loved and cared for you are.  You also need to give back to your parents.  Life isn’t all about us. It’s about learning to help each other.”
