On Monday, June 5th, nine high school youth of our parish, along with four adults, left on a retreat to Sheltowee Trace Adventure Resort near Cumberland Falls. The group had an action packed three days, accompanied by prayer,
fellowship, Catholic trivia, and faith sharing.

             Staying in a cabin and covered wagon, the group cooked out, hiked, went white water rafting, swam, rode the rapids, jumped off rocks (think life preservers), and enjoyed eating out! Fun was had by all. In addition, the youth rescued a dog and found an owner when they got home. The adults were impressed with the comradery, care and concern they gave the dog. The owner of the resort property commented that our kids were the “best group of kids she’d ever seen”!

We thank SFX parishioners for their purchase of youth fundraiser raffle tickets and donations that in large part paid for this trip. We also thank Dave Richardson for his time and leadership with the Youth.
