The Beauty of the Cross

"Pure Joy, just simply delighting in the Lord". That’s how Nam Hyun Kim ’20 described her experience with the Catholic Student Association retreat, March 2019 at the Franciscan Guest House, Kennebunkport, Maine.  37 undergraduates attended the weekend making it one of the largest group of students in recent memory. The theme of the retreat was “The Beauty of the Cross”, and was led by Fr. Marvin Bearis, OFMCap.

Sam Ho ’22 summed up his retreat experience this way, “I came to appreciate the necessity of a supportive community in the spiritual life. Throughout our lives, it is inevitable that we will face many struggles and will have to bear numerous crosses; therefore, we must try and find others with whom to bear our crosses so that we are not trying to bear our crosses alone. The retreat showed me that I did not need to search far and wide for these people when I had members of the CSA to lean on."
