Palanca sought for May 10-12 Search Retreat
Dear Faculty and Staff,
The Search Retreat, put on by Campus Ministry, is taking place on May 10-12. On Saturday evening, the Search retreatants will be presented with something called "Palanca." It is Spanish for "lever" or "influence." Palanca is a special gift that consists of letters and notes of love and support written for and to the retreatants by family members, friends and loved ones. This part of the retreat emphasizes the essence of what the Search Retreat provides-community, growth, support and love.
Below you will find a list of the students who are attending the upcoming Search Retreat. We would like to invite you all to give your love and support in a special way-an affirmation of your experiences of the retreatant in your life. We encourage letters that express the appreciation or love you feel for the retreatant, the encouragement you would like to offer them, the special memories you have shared with them, and/or your gratitude for the gifts they have offered you. No letter or message is too long or too short--it can be as simple as an inspirational quote, a poem or a fond memory. Your participation is incredibly important-especially because students only attend this retreat once during their time at SU. They do have other opportunities later to work in helping to put the retreat together but those opportunities do not include this activity again.
Deadline for Palancais May 10 at noon. Palanca can be sent to the Campus Ministry main office by mail, fax or e-mail:

Peace and prayers,
