At the beginning of October, half of the team headed to Clitheroe to work with Year 9 pupils from Stonyhurst College. The retreat offered the opportunity to focus on ‘Finding God in all things’ and we explored the theme through a number of games, discussions, activities and, of course, prayer. As our first experience of working with the college, we couldn’t have had a more pleasant and faith-filled day! It was great to get to know the pupils more and more as the day went on, opening up about our own faith journeys and beliefs. The day ended with a time of prayer, testimony, reflection and praise and worship in which pupils had time to place their own prayers into a blessing jar.
Overall, we had a thoroughly enjoyable day and hope that the young people continue to open their lives to God, seeing Him in all things.
