Archdiocese of Chicago students on retreat at the Sisters of St. Joseph's The Well

 Students from Cardinal Bernadine, St. Francis Xavier Ward, Our Lady of Tepeyac, St. Jane, St. John Fisher, St. John of the Cross, St. Leonard, Pius V, and St. Sabina joined together today for the Artists for Peace Retreat at the Well. A similar retreat was held in Nsukka in February 2014.

Students choose colored string to create bracelets to share.

 Students work together to create bracelets. In working together students are reminded that working together is easier than working alone.

Sr. Bee Jay shares stories from her many trips to Nsukka. Sr. Bee Jay talks about the food students eat, the distance they travel to school, what school supplies students have access to, and features of the school.

Students try the Fufu that Esther made. While the consistency of the food was not quite the same as what we have enjoyed in Nsukka, students got a chance to taste a little bit of Nigeria! One student commented that the Fufu tastes like "communion."
