SMS Faculty Retreat
What better way to kick off the opening of the SMS academic year than to have the faculty gather in prayer, scripture study, and meditation! That is exactly what our teachers and staff participated in on August 19th. This day of reflection took place at St. Francis of Assisi Parish with their Director of Religious Education Mary Kay Burberry as the presenter. The focus of the day was the Chicago Archdiocesan School theme for this year: “Angels Among Us”. Moving stories of how angels appear in our lives were shared. Soon after, everyone enjoyed some much needed relaxation time while practicing the Scripture practice of meditating while engaging in Lectio Divina as an approach to a deeper understanding of God’s living word. All of the teachers look forward to presenting the topic of angels to our students… ”littles and bigs”!
