"...for we walk by faith, not by sight." 2 Cor 5:7

8th Grade Camp and Class Retreat 2018

The Paschal Mystery

8th grade at All Saints Academy starts of each year with 4 special events tied to our 4 Core Values to kick off their "leadership year!"

Faith: The 8th grade class retreat in the fall focuses on The Paschal Mystery and verse the class has selected as their theme for the year.

In their own words: On retreat we learned...
"we have so many great memories about ASA!"
"dying to self means we must make small sacrifices for others"

Learning: Student spend time working with Mr. Matlak and Mrs. Zimelis to set a series of goals for their 8th grade year that they share with parents during a special meal after camp.

Loving: Students spend a day at Camp ManitouLin practicing team building skills to develop bonds and habit of encouragement as they support each other through challenges throughout the day. 

In their own words: At camp we learned to...
"face noting with fear"
"sometimes you just have to trust your friends"
"encourage others"
"overcome fears and do what seems scary because I may end up loving it"

Serving: Students are invited to help serve at the Lake Michigan Credit Union Bridge Run by manning an aid station in Riverside Park on and early Sunday morning in September!
