32 boys, five adults, and a very busy weekend.
We were lucky enough to take all of the scholars to Manresa, Brophy’s retreat facility in Oak Creek. We had a few goals for the weekend: learn a little about St. Ignatius and Loyola Academy, begin to bond as a community, and have fun.
We started the evening with some basketball and some “get to know you” activities.
But we also went right to work reading and writing about St. Ignatius.
And a few of us learned how to play the piano.
Saturday we woke up early and went for a hike.
Of course, we continued to read and work together….
Sunday morning, after cleaning and packing up, we met in the chapel – where every scholar committed himself to doing something that would allow him and his classmates to be successful at Loyola. It was great.
And then we took one last picture before heading home.
We can’t wait until the 11th.
