The O’Neill/St. Luke Faith Day took place on May 17th. It was a fun, fantastic, and faith-filled event. The day was started by a liturgy lead by O’Neill and St. Luke students. Our keynote speaker Colm Leyne took the stage and shared his life story and positive messages making better decisions. Students then had the opportunity to attend workshops that they sign up beforehand using PD Place (thanks Ms. Genna Rodiquez for all your work on registering over 800 students). There were over 20 sessions to choose from with a wide variety of themes (yoga to adoration to asking the freakin’ deacon to understanding genocide and more) but with each one being tied into growing, expressing, understanding, and sharing our faith. Lunch was served for over 800 people – not quite like Jesus breaking of the loaves and fish but it felt like it. The day was wrapped up with a closing liturgy led by Fr. Meehan, a song written and performed that day by O’Neill/St. Luke students, and an ejournalism video project that showed highlights from the entire day. Overall the O’Neill/St. Luke Faith Day was a great experience. Thanks to the organizing committee and all involved that provided a great faith-filled day.
