In early March, over 90 students and 20 adults representing our 13 Xaverian Brothers Sponsored Schools gathered in West Hartford, Connecticut for the annual Retreat which was rooted in the Fundamental Principles. Students from across our network of schools were invited to reflect on their lived experience of the Xaverian Charism within their schools and spiritual lives. After three days of bearing witness to one another and invited guests, the Junior participants embarked on a day of service, assisting eleven agencies serving the poor and marginalized in the greater Hartford community. By encountering those marginalized by society, the students were called to put their faith into action through authentic accompaniment and kinship. This five-day retreat culminated with school groups creating an action plan to further enrich the mission of Xaverian education back in their school communities. The XBSS office looks forward to supporting and sharing the transformative efforts these students will implement in their schools over the next year.
