SPIRIT's annual lock-in was on New Year's Eve this year. We started the lock-in with 29 Youth and Adults celebrating the Feast of the Solemnity of Mary. Following Mass SPIRIT traveled to Charles and Peggy Blanchard's house for a bonfire where we roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. After returning to St. Patrick, we played ice breaker games to work together and get to know each other better. Delaine Johnson lead SPIRIT in a prayer service to release the bad of 2011 and embrace the good of 2012. We rang in the New Year with an awesome fireworks show. Five youth and four adults managed to stay awake all night. We ended the lock-in with prayer and breakfast. Everyone enjoyed celebrating the New Year together.
