Awesome Retreat for St. Michael’s Boys

A long anticipated weekend away for the boys of St. Michael’s School participating in the Freedom Within course took place from 18th to 20th March 2011.

CURB’s Robert Payne accompanied CFEO’s Adrian Alexander to a beach-house at Guayaguayare to meet the male staff and lads for the retreat.

The For Men Only (FMO) experience focused on a series of issues of life with an emphasis on the effect on young males.

Open and frank discussions on sex, sexuality, lust, masturbation, human biology, homosexuality and how to treat a woman kept the lads attentive and engaged for the weekend.

There was also ample opportunity for fun with time being allotted for activities such as football, fishing, swimming, watching movies and ‘liming’.

We give God praise for the spiritual success of this first FMO session and for protection over the weekend and for the long drive to and from the beach-house.

Kudos to the men of St. Michael’s who cooked and organised the weekend! Special mention must be made of the coordinators Oswald and Ryan.

Visitors Robert and Bernard who returned on Sunday 20th March were able to interface with the boys, building meaningful relationships.

We also appreciate all the female staff who assisted in planning and preparation and interceded from home throughout the weekend.

The feedback from the boys was very positive with many of them making a covenant to change their lifestyles and attitudes towards members of the opposite sex.
