Senior retreat, which took place on March 19, was the Class of 2021’s final retreat allowing them to bond with their classmates and prepare for their last months of high school together.
Senior retreat leader Kara Constantino prepared for retreat by attending weekly meetings and coordinating ideas with her co-leader, senior Mary Cate Tabor. Constantino was excited to work with Mary Cate knowing they would feed off each other’s energy and create a positive atmosphere for their group together.
She decided to be a retreat leader because she feels retreats are an important way of bonding as a class and building connections with each other. “I am hoping my group got a sense of comfort knowing that they end their time at Marian on a good note and can look back at their last four years here in a positive way,” Constantino said.
Senior Sarah Burbach’s favorite part of retreat was getting to know her classmates more. She felt she was able to bond more with everyone in her group as they are people she hasn’t spent a lot of time with at Marian.
“My expectations going into retreat was that it would help me grow closer to my class and I was able to do that through different, fun activities,” Burbach said. She said her expectations were exceeded and enjoyed growing relationships with her classmates and God.
Knowing her time at Marian is coming to an end, Burbach said, “I will spend the rest of high school trying to further my connections with my peers and cherishing my time here at Marian.”
