Eight Students & Three Staff Members Build Bonds and Faith Communities at Marianist LIFE

Jul 29, 2019

Eight STVM students and three faculty members recently enjoyed a week-long experience called Marianist Summer LIFE (Living in Faith Experience) at the Bergamo Center for Life Long Learning in Beavercreek, Ohio. They spent their days building small faith communities, which included the sacraments, prayer, leadership development, and social justice education. The week was filled with a lot of fun and building of lifelong friendships!

STVM teacher Meghan Dannemiller and Campus Minister Christine Spinner served as Moderators. They joined 50 other high school students and a total of 25 adults from 10 different Marianist sponsored high schools from Ohio, Nebraska, Missouri, and Puerto Rico. Teacher Glen Griffin served on the Coordinating Team for the Marianists. The STVM students who attended will now serve our school as the Marianist LIFE Core Team planning community building events for our whole student body. Those students include:

Ryan Bronowski
Jackie Cantor
Nora DeKemper
Maggie McCarron

Emily Bame
Jackson Deitrick
Chase Powers
Adam Reese

Other Seniors on our Core Team who attended LIFE last summer are:
