Rebecca felt the presence of God at her confirmation retreat

Whether you’re a student or a parent, it’s often hard to decide what matters most. Jackson Lumen Christi freshman Rebecca Berkemeier shares how feeling the presence of God during a confirmation retreat with her middle school class helped her put things in perspective.

“Kind of like getting hugged by God, it made us feel very safe and united. Middle school sometimes seems like a competition, but that night we realized that we have a lot more in common than we think. We hear that all the time, but sharing an experience like we did that night, you actually begin to believe it. I never thought many of the people I was with could go through something like that. But we did. Together.”
