“WE ARE ONE” OVERNIGHT GRADE 9 RETREAT At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present I know partially; then I shall know fully, as I am fully known. So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1Corinthians 13: 12-13 (NAB) As a body is one though it has many parts, and all the parts of the body, though many, are one body, so also Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free persons, and we were all given to drink of one Spirit. 1Corinthians 12: 13-14a (NAB) The Retreat is a school-wide commitment to enable all Grade Nine students to enter as easily as possible into the Catholic culture and community of Robert F.
