2022 Metanoia Retreat
One-hundred and twenty students from John Carroll Catholic High School (88 freshmen and sophomores and 32 upperclassmen leaders) attended the 2022 Metanoia Retreat at the Alabama 4-H Center in Columbiana on Dec. 2-4. The retreat, which was organized by the John Carroll Office of Campus Ministry, included a series of student-led testimonials, small group discussions, team building and competition activities, community building games and encounters, evening Mass in an outdoor chapel, Eucharistic Adoration, and a Saturday evening bonfire. The retreat seeks to provide students with an encounter of the Father's love and mercy, through the unpacking of the story of the Prodigal Son. Students deepen their relationship with Christ and connect with their classmates on a more spiritual level.
