Tuesday, March 28-29. 2017: On the first day, sixty-eight Archbishop Curley High School students gathered for the Sophomore retreat entitled:  “And the Lord Gave Me Brothers.”    It was a wonderful experience emphasizing the call to brotherhood among the students and in the “Franciscan” tradition.   During the homily at Mass the young students were also encouraged to consider joining the brotherhood of the Franciscan Friars Conventuals.  On the second day, sixty-seven more Sophomores gathered for a repeat experience.
