I spent all day yesterday at St. Benedict's Monastery in Oxford at a retreat with a bunch of eighth graders. It was so beautiful. The church sits atop a hill and overlooks most of Oakland County.

The kids learned how to meditate and journal. They also celebrated the sacrament of reconciliation and then we all went to mass together. I don't want to write too much about it as it was very private--just a quiet day with God.
