Young Adult Reflection: Zach Schumacher

My name is Zach Schumacher, I am a graduate of Roselle Catholic and a Marist Young Adult. This past weekend I had the opportunity to go up to Esopus and be apart of the very first Music Ministry Retreat! Not only was the retreat an amazing opportunity to meet new faces and make memories, but it was also a weekend of prayer, reflection, and discovery. 

The primary purpose of the weekend was for the music ministry team and anyone interested in joining to get together and start learning some songs for this years Marist Youth Gathering. I was very excited to get back in a room with all my friends and family and just have fun, but so much more came from that. Most memorably on Friday night we had about a two hour jam session right off the bat, and when we called time for a break, we all somehow ended up jamming some more and recorded about a thirty minute session of us all experimenting and taking turns soloing. It was such an incredible moment. I got to understand and connect with my peers on a brand new level, musically. 

At the end of each night we'd recap the days goals and highlights, but most importantly reflect on why we were all there and what our calling was as music ministers. We as musicians, all have our strengths and weaknesses of course, but as a team we were able to pick eachother up and help where others fell short. God gave us all these gifts of music and seeing what everyone had to offer was truly beautiful.
