This year's junior class retreat was focused on service. It was held at the Pro Sanctity Center located north of Elkhorn. The retreat was presented by Jessie an Apostolic Oblate and Jeff a college student who shared his conversion journey.

The day began with the celebration of the Eucharist and was followed by presentations, projects and participation in some service work around the grounds. Lunch was served by a generous group of junior class mothers who prepared a variety of delicious dishes. More Photos

Youth Rally and Fall Festival

Youth Rally & Fall Festival
Despite clouds and drizzle the Youth Rally and Fall Festival were a success. Because of the cool temperatures and rain, the Youth Rally was moved from the parking lot into the gym on Saturday afternoon. The gathering saw young people from many locales in eastern Nebraska gather at the Mount for fun and to strengthen and renew their faith.

Sunday's Festival saw plenty of clouds and drizzle in the morning, but by 2:00 pm the sky began to clear and the sun soon warmed a growing crowd, that had been slow to arrive up to that point.

Thank you to everyone who attended the events and the sponsors and friends of Mount Michael who worked so hard to make them a success.
