Scouts encounter the Lord in many ways at annual retreat

Alan Foley, Cody Meinert and Adam Missner danced and sang to a Catholic rock band during Encounter Weekend at Beaumont Scout Reservation Sept. 16. The weekend, which was for Boy Scouts and Venture Scouts sixth grade through high school, included faith-related activities, outdoor eucharistic adoration and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. More than 300 attended.

The storm approached the campground and, as evidenced on the weather radar, surrounded the area like a pair of mighty hands on the verge of clasping each other.

Instead, the rain held off, and the Boy Scouts and Venture Crew members attending last year's Encounter Weekend retreat were able to continue with their Saturday night tradition: spending time in front of the Lord outside in eucharistic adoration. And as fate would have it, the storm finally closed in on the campground just as the staff were packing away the last of the equipment after adoration.
