This past March, 75 students from colleges and universities across the country converged on Villa Maria Guadalupe, our retreat center in Stamford, CT, where we hosted a 10-day alternative spring break experience.  Throughout the week, the students were immersed in prayer and the love of God and of the Sisters while also engaging in a wide range of experiences, from a 2 day silent retreat to start the week to volunteer days at our motherhouse to a “Saints in NYC” tour to attending presentations by well-known Catholic speakers Peter Kreeft and Vicki Thorn as well as attending our Co-Worker of Life training.  By the end of the week friendships had deepened and many new friendships had been forged as the Lord generously and abundantly poured out his grace on these students!  

In the weeks that followed this 10-day experience, we hosted volunteer days at our motherhouse for several other spring breaks trips who were in NYC for their spring breaks.  What a joy it has been to meet these students who are deeply in love with the Lord and who are ever ready to generously give of themselves in service to the other!
