SCOTCH PLAINS – Over 40 new and returning Peer Ministers from Union Catholic High School participated in a training day at the Archdiocesan Youth Retreat Center in Kearny. The goal of the day was to build the team and prepare the Peer Ministers to lead groups and activities on days of Recollection for the rest of the school.

Students engaged in a multitude of team building activities, including the Challenge Course where students tested their own limits and relied on the help and support of their fellow Peer Ministers. With the assistance of trained professionals, students were encouraged to take positive risks without negative pressure. Scripture-led group sessions followed each activity, enabling the Peer Ministry team to end the day feeling especially prepared to bring back both spirituality and teamwork. The Peer Ministry team strives to underscore this year’s theme of “Community” by promoting service within and outside of the school community.
