St. Francis seniors retreat to Camp Luther

Packed in the back of the bus, the senior class made their way to Camp Luther near Schuyler Oct. 14th. Accompanied by Father Wayne Pavela and Tina Schumacher, they celebrated their final class retreat with activities, good food, and an adventure led by their guide Father Wayne. Once they arrived, the students sat around tables playing cards, tossing a ping pong ball into an empty tub, prompting Father Wayne to say, “It does not take much to entertain these guys.”
