Entire PACT Community Gathers for Winter Retreat

During the weekend of January 24-25, 2014, all current members of the PACT program met at the O'Connor Retreat House outside of Boston. The retreat was led by Keith Mackeiwicz, SJ, who is a graduate of the PACT program (PACT 4, Cathedral High School, Springfield, MA).

Lawrence-at-Retreat.jpgThe theme of the retreat was based on a quote from St. Augustine: "Be what you see and receive what you are: the Body of Christ". It was a wonderful opportunity to share in faith and fellowship.
