Advisory committee holds team building retreat

17/02/2008: United States

The Marist Young Adult Advisory Committee met in Esopus from January 6th-8th to evaluate completed activities, to plan for the spring semester and to participate in a team building retreat. The team meeting was led by Matt Fallon, chair, and was attended by Jaclyn Fortich, Ximena Gonzalez, Dan Hernandez, Joey Insua, Katie Reilly, Kerry Sullivan, Mike Sweeney, and Chris Waters.

Following the meeting, Bro. Ben Consigli led the group in a reflective exercise on Marist identity. Throughout the remainder of the retreat, the group engaged in activities requiring teamwork and were then invited to reflect on each group process in light of a New Testament passage and a section from “Water from the Rock.”

Following the example of the early brothers, the committee spent an afternoon performing manual work, as well. The retreat ended with each individual making a pledge to Mary, in the spirit of the first Marist’s pledge at Fourviere, to continue to make the Marist Young Adult Group a reality.
