Loyola High School of Los Angeles' winter Junior Leadership Retreat was held at the beautiful Franciscan Serra Retreat House in Malibu on November 29 and 30, 2012. There were thirty-two juniors, two senior leaders, and five faculty leaders at the retreat center that was shrouded in the mist and clouds of an uncharacteristically rainy two days. For Mr. Mason, Mr. Goepel, and Mr. McClave, it was the tenth or eleventh retreat. Mr. Bodensteiner joined the faculty team for the first time. Fr. Stephen Barber, S.J. has participated in countless retreats and conducted the concluding liturgy. The young men assumed ownership of the retreat and turned it into a positive spiritual experience for everyone.
