A  group of Mount Michael students spent Thursday night at Vespers and dinner with the Monks. Later in the night, there was a bonfire on the bluff followed by a reflection about prayer and group discussion. The late night ended with prayer in the chapel. After joining monks for prayer and Mass Friday morning, Abbot Michael gave the students a talk about his calling to be a priest. For the grand adventure: Mr. Connealy and Mr. Hotovy took the students to the remote fringes of Fontenelle Forest where students climbed “Mount Doom” and navigated the wilds. Lastly, the expedition departed for the Holy Family Shrine where students spent silent time reflecting and prayer. The stay at the Shrine concluded with a group discussion about resolutions to become the best-version-of-yourself and to pray daily.  More Photos

Every October when the seniors leave campus for their annual retreat, the underclassmen spend the morning taking their PSAT tests and after lunch burn off pent up energy with an hour of community service work, followed by Dodge Ball in the gym.

This year the community service projects included putting the window air conditioners away, cleaning the buses, cleaning athletic storage areas, setting up for the District Cross Country Meet, cutting down scrub brush and small trees and many other projects.  More Photos
