FATIMA HIGH SCHOOL - AMBERNATH: STUDENTS' RETREAT

FATIMA HIGH SCHOOL - AMBERNATH: STD X RETREAT
18th December 2014
Braving the terrible cold, Fr. Glenn Lowe ventured for the first time to animate over 120 students of STD X A/B/C from Fatima high School - Ambernath. Thanks to Fr. Russell, Principal of the school from his warm words of welcome and to Mrs. Liz for her kind hospitality. Inspite of being a school holiday, the students gathered for a day's retreat in the senior citizens' hall.
 The theme foe the recollection was "Discovery of My Valued Self: A gift from God for Others". The session challenged the students to take the time to doing some soul searching and to discover the sacredness of life and one's contribution to society. In the wake of the brutal killings of over 130 children in Peshawar, Pakistan, Fr. Glenn invited the students to choose the better options in life. The powerful video clips and the true life stories, coupled with personal testimonies enabled the students to look at real life models and to start discovering a 'Defining moment' in their own personal lives and to start believing that every thins is possible.
 The second part of the session focused on their own personal journey of life. "Clean Your River Campaign" was a powerful opportunity for every student to review the stages of their life and to make decisions for change. "You have one life to live, live it 100%, 99 is not good enough," he said. The students took time to share the various stories of their life, for good and for bad. "This is the first time I really spent time on myself," whispered a student.
 At the end of the session a number of students came forward to write their comments in the AVEC log book:
