Packing for REACH MORE™ Live

When making your list of what to bring to REACH MORE™ Live, please include the following: casual clothing (comfortable, but also appropriate for daily Mass), toiletries (shampoo, toothpaste, etc.), a Bible (hard copy – you will need it!), pens, journal, spiritual reading, and things to do during free time (exercise clothes, games, books, etc.). Bedding and towels will be provided (bring an extra towel if you wish – ND reports theirs are on the “small side”). In the dorms, there is one male and one female bathroom on each floor. Shower shoes are recommended.

What Should I Wear?

Keep it comfortable! Casual clothing appropriate for daily Mass is welcome. We know the summer months can get warm, but please be mindful in choosing modest attire for the week. ND recommends a sweater for the air-conditioned buildings. Good walking shoes are recommended, as ND is a pedestrian campus.
