Toronto Catholic District School Board

Rooted in Christ

Grade 12 students from Blessed Mother Teresa C.S.S. attended a Graduation Retreat at Mary Lake Retreat Centre in King City. Through the theme of “Rooted in Christ”, students participated in reflection, prayer, fun-filled group activities and veneration of the cross. Retreat facilitators, Paola Fraietta and Frank Sorbara encouraged students to remain rooted as they embark on the next chapter of their lives as Catholic Secondary School graduates.
 
Students reflected on the following scriptural passage in connection with the theme of the retreat:
 
As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe and not according to Christ.” (Colossians 2: 6-8)
 
In the words of a student participant, “this was truly an inspiring experience of renewal, that I will never forget.”
