This year's Freshman Retreat was held September 20-22 at the Catholic Conference and Formation Center in Dallas. The retreat was led by 18 junior and senior UD students who had been planning the retreat since April. The retreat theme was "Jesus, I trust in You!"
The purpose of the retreat is to help freshman integrate their academic life with their faith and prayer lives. Talks on identifying themselves with Jesus, styles of prayer and good stewardship of their time were ways in which the older students addressed these issues with the freshman retreatants.
The sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist were celebrated on Saturday evening, as well as a beautiful Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament which ended our Saturday. It was a weekend full of prayer and friendship.
