“Apart from Christ we can do nothing. With Him we can do all things.”

College age students from around the diocese participate in a game called “minefield,” during which the blindfolded students need to follow the advice of teammates guiding them past obstacles, during the annual diocesan intercollegiate retreat.
 
The theme of the retreat was MOVE and how Faith can give one the ability to move mountains – especially in evangelization. Father Brian O’Shaughnessy, retreat chaplain, spoke of what it means to be a disciple of Christ and how to share the gift of faith with others­—the ability and courage to share the story of their own hearts and faith journeys.
 
More than 30 students attended the retreat held April 21-23 and over half of the students were sponsored by scholarships from the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist; Sacred Heart Church, Savannah; Saint Theresa Church, Albany; CCW councils, Right to Life Ministry and other generous individuals.
 
The retreat closed on Divine Mercy Sunday with the students praying the Divine Mercy Chaplets for the needs of their campus ministries and the campuses that have not been reached yet.
