Harkins sponsors spiritual retreat to Mount St. Mary’s University
Religion teacher Rachel Harkins will accompany students to the Mount 2000 and Beyond retreat from February 10 to 12. Harkins and six students will be staying with other teenagers in the dorms at Mount Saint Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Maryland.
“It’s themed as a Eucharistic retreat,” Harkins said. A mass will be held on all three days of the retreat, and there will also be a night of silent adoration.
“It’s held annually for high school students,” Harkins said. Activities will include in-depth talks as well as a “praise and worship band” that will perform during holy hour. Holy hour is a separate time for meditation, prayer, and adoration. The retreat is now closed for sign-up.
