Loreto Retreats by Numbers

Last Wednesday we rounded off a wonderful half term in Loreto College by spending the day with Year 10. It was the last of 5 retreat days booked in the school this term and a chance to meet more of the fabulous young women who make up the Loreto community. 

It’s impossible to sum up the fun, challenge, energy, conversations and discovery of all the 5 days here. But to give you an idea, I present ‘Step’s Loreto Retreat Days by Numbers’!

5 days

125 sessions

800 students

1 half-chewed £20 note

20 metres of handwritten psalms

1 record-breaking score in the Fairtrade Game

20 Step staff and volunteers

480 handmade bracelets

15 form group prayers

4 stuffed sheep

1650 biscuits

I am hugely grateful to the school for having us, to Ss Alban and Stephen Church for letting us borrow their space, and to all the volunteers who helped make the retreats happen.

Thanks also to every student for getting stuck in and making all the hard work worth it – we loved meeting you!

As always, if you want to find out how you could be part of our retreat days, just contact Terrie.
