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.
