Not everyone was disappointed with the snowy weather this past winter.  Boys and dads – 87 to be exact – gathered for a weekend retreat of skiing and spiritual growth last month.

The event was organized by Fr. Jacob Dumont LC, through Sacred Heart Apostolic School in Rolling Prairie, Indiana. Skiing took place at the Bittersweet Ski Resort in Otsego, Michigan.

“The dads, young men, and boys came from Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and even Kansas,” said Fr. Jacob.

Retreat reflections were presented in three “tracks,” one for dads, one for high school young men, and one for boys in 5th – 8th grade.

“Daily activities for the boys and teens included sports, dynamic team activities, spiritual talks, Mass, and an opportunity for confession,” said Fr. Jacob. “The dads joined the boys and young men for some of their activities, but also had time to get together to speak about parenting, the Theology of the Body, and how to help their family to continue growing in the faith.”
