Our Confirmation Class attends their first retreat together in New York City.  The first night, they go to the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, the largest cathedral in the world, where they participate in a spiritual and educational program called Nightwatch Crossroads (link: http://www.stjohndivine.org/families/nightwatch/crossroads ).  The following day, they work in a soup kitchen and do some holy sightseeing, including a visit to the 9/11 Memorial.  On Sunday, they attend church at The Riverside Church (http://www.trcnyc.org) which is a large “cathedral-like” UCC church in Manhattan before they return home weary and inspired!

Please pray for us while we travel and learn!
