Our thanks to Michael Haritan, photojournalist, who presented information to SBA students about the devastation from the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine.
On Tuesday, December 5, the Sophomores enjoyed their retreat at the Basilian Spirituality Center. The theme of the day was "Striving for Sainthood". Students had a full day of singing, Bible study, quiet time, Liturgy, and hearing from Father Peter Waslo. It was a wonderful day of prayer and class bonding, a great way to kick off the Advent season!
