Special Reflection Program Committee


Chariman: OPEN


Create annual opportunities for prayer and reflection as a fraternity. Many Catholic young people can attest that religious retreats are radically rejuvenating spiritual events that often leave a lasting impact on participants’ relationship to their faith. Yet, so often, retreats seem only open to students and youth. In conjunction with pastors, councils and jurisdictions can hold low-cost retreats of their own. These events might be open only to council members or men of the parish – or may be open to entire families. If councils are unable to organize events themselves, they could go as a group and attend a retreat in their area to satisfy the requirement. Council participation in Spiritual Reflection is required to qualify for the Columbian award.
