East St. Louis Retreat
PRAYING WITH OUR FEET:
East St. Louis Urban Immersion Retreat
Friday August 10th
Want to discover more about East Side Heart & Home Family Center?
This one-day urban immersion retreat through East Side Heart & Home Family Center is structured so that
our scl teens or parents can create connections with East St. Louis: its history, its present reality, and its people.
Participants will challenge the dominant narrative of East St. Louis by meeting and spending time with residents, wrestle with the contemporary challenges in East St. Louis by first contextualizing its history, and discern their personal and collective responsibility to take action and to “pray with their feet.”
We will Gather at St. Catherine Laboure at 8:00am and SCLYM Staff and Volunteers will drive our participants to East Side Heart and Home Family Center.
Wear comfortable clothing.
Lunch will be provided.
Our retreat ends at 2:30 and we expect to return to SCL by 3:00pm
