On Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th October we were extremely proud to welcome Just Youth into Newman for a Retreat day for our Year 7 students. This was planned in to celebrate our Patron and was centred around the idea of mission and what our mission is. Students were in the MPH all day where they worked in small groups with activities that encouraged them to reflect on their lives, what is important to them and their relationships with God and others. Students ended the day with a Mass where they celebrated our Patron on the week of his Feast Day and reflected on the mission we all have been given in life.
Just Youth encouraged all to take part to reflect on the belief that we all continue Jesus' mission today as the Body of Christ and do the work he set off and started. It was a wonderful retreat, we are extremely grateful to Just Youth and very proud of our Year 7s.
