We can hardly believe that our Educators have been in the Twin Cities for a month and are entering their last week of training! From the opening retreat to summer school at Holy Family Academy and ministry training with Pro Ecclesia Sancta, to workshops with IEW and A-List, TC Educators have had a packed schedule.
Training and orientation was kicked off with a silent retreat led by Chaplain Fr. Adam Tokashiki, PES. The retreat was based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, one of our patron saints. Educator Stephen Barnhart commented that the retreat gave the Educators a "time to pray and reflect on our mission" which is to bring souls to Christ through education. "We can't be missionaries of the Gospel if we are not alive to the Gospel ourselves."
The ministry training and the other modules has left Educator Lucas Berke "full of zeal to help the schools we work in. It really united our commitment to Christ and our commitment to the students we are going to be working with."
With the first day of school on the horizon, we ask that you keep all of the TC Educators in your prayers.
