XBSS Student Retreat 2018

The annual XBSS Junior retreat was held in March at the Holy Family Retreat Center in West Hartford, Connecticut. Even a Nor’Easter could not dampen the spirits of the 110 attendees from across our 13 Xaverian Brothers Sponsored Schools. Our senior and adult leaders did a tremendous job leading the 78 juniors in daily prayer, reflection, and conversation. Fr. David Choquette, a graduate of Xavier High School in Middletown, CT, celebrated Mass with all of us on the first evening. Five adult leaders had the distinction of not only being XBSS graduates themselves, but they also attended the retreat as students years ago. Their witness talks to the juniors were powerful examples of how influential a Xaverian education has been in their lives.

 

The many tears and hugs among the students on the last morning surely indicated the impact this retreat had on them. These leaders now eagerly return to their local communities, seeking to build upon the great legacy our Xaverian Brothers have created
