Magis Notes May 2012
Posted by Amanda Kelly on Wednesday, May 9, 2012 at 2:49 PM PDT
This month, Magis features three of five Freeburg family siblings: Jim Freeburg (Santa Clara University '03), Ben Freeburg (Gonzaga University '01) and Katrina Freeburg (Gonzaga University '98, JVC '99). Each embrace and share the values of Jesuit education with their friends, family, and community. As they shared: "Because we've always had a strong community, we continue our Jesuit experience by building that community for others… It's a blessing and a responsibility to be Jesuit-educated, and we embrace this role wholeheartedly." Magis is grateful for sharing their perspective on how Jesuit-education has shaped them into being men and women for others. Click here to read their reflection.
Are you looking for a retreat opportunity and are in your 20's or 30's? If so, Magis is hosting its annual Young Adult Retreat at IslandWood in Bainbridge May 18-20. This year's theme is Living in the Heart of God: Confirming Choices in Community. This Ignatian-style retreat will be led by retreat directors Fr. Jack Bentz, SJ, Sr. Cathy Beckley, SNJM, and Maria Ochoa, and will invite reflection on life circumstances and commitments, grounding retreatants in a sense of faith and community through creative exercises, small-group sharing, and time for relaxation. The retreat is open to persons of all faiths and walks of life. Cost is $125 and includes room and board for the weekend. There are only a few spots left, so email Assistant Director Maria Ochoa today!
