Saturday dawned clear and bright … and somewhat slowly for a few tired souls! A good number of students (about 100) arose early to hike up to the Punch Bowls, a collection of spring-fed, natural pools about two miles above the campus. Led by a group of prefects, many jumped into a swimming hole for a hearty and refreshing swim before coming back down the beautiful canyon.
Later that afternoon students met up again on the athletic field for a barbeque and some pickup games of volleyball and soccer. From 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., Chaplain Rev. Cornelius M. Buckley, Buckley, S.J., led a well-attended Holy Hour, during which there was silent meditation, a group rosary, confession, and Adoration and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. Then students came together on the back patio for some popcorn, candy, and a movie — a great classic, The Sandlot. Other students began a spontaneous dance lesson in the Commons, practicing their new swing abilities.
The night ended peacefully, with students looking forward to the next day’s trip to Carpinteria State Beach and Santa Barbara’s famous State Street.
