Our Rebel Heart Blog is a place where our Teurlings School Community can grow deeper in their understanding of our faith. Students, teachers, and other members of our community will post here each week about their personal encounters with Christ that have taken place both on and off campus. We invite you to follow along as we continue to grow in love of the Lord and as we strive to channel His Spirit for the glory of God.

BUILDING A COMMUNITY IN CHRIST
Written by Roan Guidry, 12th Grade
The school year is returning, the Rebel community is coming together and the events are in full swing again. The Campus Ministry class kicked off the year with our first annual Rebel Revival. The theme was “Hold On To Me” and students and faculty were encouraged to dress up as their favorite “Dynamic Duo.”
Our turnout was great and the costumes were equally as inspirational. A few of my personal favorites included Leah (12th) and Gabi (12th) dressed as Coach Dueitt and Coach Dane, and Ms. Faz and Mrs. Laborde (who was quarantined and making an appearance over FaceTime) dressed as an exhausted mother and her baby.
The evening included pizza, games, skits, and praise and worship. Bennett Bodin gave an inspirational testimony on the importance of community in one's personal life and the benefits to a community in Christ.
When asked about his experience, Cade Savoy (12th) said, “I had a lot of fun at Rebel Revival. Hearing Bennett’s testimony made me more passionate about my faith. I will definitely come back next time!”
And Jenny Forest (9th) said, “It was really cool to see how everyone was open and honest with each other. I really enjoyed the sense of community.”
The first Rebel Revival showed a new sense of community. A community that is able to gather together for a night of fun and faith can only grow stronger and become more united. If this first Rebel Revival is a sign of those to come, then I firmly believe this year will be one centered around community and our shared Catholic Faith.
If you were unable to attend, I strongly encourage you to put your best foot forward and attempt to attend the next one. The Retreat Ministry class is looking forward to hosting at least one Rebel Revival per month. So, we look forward to seeing you in October.
