Kennedy Catholic High School played host to more than 300 students in grades eight through 12 from Friday evening on Dec. 8 through Sunday afternoon on Dec. 10. The occasion was a spiritual retreat facilitated by Fearless Ministries.

Fearless Ministries conducts outreach dedicated to leading teens to a personal encounter with Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. The three-day retreats are meant to inspire young people to live and proclaim the Gospel.

The retreat at Kennedy Catholic included talks by priests of the archdiocese, Franciscan Friars of the Renewal and staff members, Rosary, opportunities for confession, a Eucharistic procession around school grounds and daily Masses.

“Kennedy Catholic was proud to host over 300 students on this retreat,” said Rev. Mark Vaillancourt, president and principal of Kennedy Catholic. “The weekend consisted of fun and prayer in a way that drew the participants closer to Christ and His Church. The program had for its main objective the strengthening of young people in their faith as they accept the challenges of living a Christian life in an ever-expanding secular world.”
