January 2017 Encounter Christ Retreat

Students from Eight Marist Schools Around the Country Gathered in Esopus for an Encounter Christ Retreat

 

 

The second Marist Youth Encounter Christ Retreat took place at the Marist Brothers Center in Esopus from January 26th -29th.  Over 60 students from eight Marist schools participated in the Encounter, which was led by Mr. Matt Fallon and his team of 14 Marist Young Adults. The following adults also helped in the retreat: Br. Rene Roy, Br. Al Rivera, Br. Bob Warren, Br. Brian Poulin, Br. John Dunning, Br. Gerry Doherty, Ms. Nina Lokar, Mr. Tim Hagan, Mrs. Maureen Hagan, Mr. Larry Kupferman, Ms. Miriam Eisenmenger, AnnMarie Brennan, Ashley Callagy, Andy Murray, Joe LoGuidice, Marcel Navarro, Mike Valente, and Tony Delgiudice.

 

 

The Marist Youth Encounter program has been going strong for almost 50 years. The weekend consisted of numerous faith based talks on a wide range of topics including – “Who Am I?”, faith, scripture, discipleship, prayer, and community - with each talk followed by smaller discussion groups. Students participate in a number of different forms of prayer including Taize, meditation, shared prayer, prayer in nature, as well as an opportunity for Reconciliation and a Liturgy. The challenge of the Encounter has remained the same over the years, challenging the young people who make the retreat to continue to live the experience each day moving forward.

 

 

The schools that participated were Archbishop Molloy (Queens, NY), Central Catholic (Lawrence, MA), Roselle Catholic (Roselle, NJ), St. Joseph Regional (Montvale, NJ), Monsignor Pace (Miami, FL), St. Mary’s (Manhasset, NY), Mount St. Michael Academy (Bronx, NY) and Marist High School (Bayonne, NJ).
