With ACE Mentee, Touchdown Jesus in the background
When my first retirement missioning assignment sent me to sunny
Arizona, I began to think of it as an adventure. To top that off I was invited
to a conference at the University of Notre Dame, my Alma Mater and a FAVORITE
spot, I began to describe my volunteer status as my “Adventure in Retirement.” Several days of learning the philosophy of the ACE Academies, meeting other new ACE Academy Staff members and the Notre Dame staff were great. Several days on the Notre Dame campus with no homework assignments or exams was a nice feature too! A tour of Notre Dame Stadium, Press Box and all, was the last activity before the closing Mass. The spot with the Library with its mural dubbed "Touchdown Jesus" in the background was a favorite place for pictures.
