"MINISTRY TO YOUNG ADULTS"
7TH GRADE - 9TH GRADE RETREATS
The Confirmation Retreat is to bring young people to an understanding of the meaning of the sacrament as the beginning of their journey in faith. Our goal is to invite the youth to the loving relationship/ image of God, and to help them to understand how their life can look different when living as confirmed Catholics living out their faith. The students will be invited to recognize their gifts and be able to use them in service for God.
Graduation is a time to both savor what has been and to look with hopeful expectation at what is yet to be. The retreat offers students a way to creatively explore the face of Jesus hidden in friends, classmates, teachers, and family as well as discovering Jesus within them. The students will be encouraged to discover new ways to embrace their faith as they continue their journey to be the very special person God is calling them to be.
"Where is God Hiding" is a new retreat offering that will focus on who they are in this culture of activity. What are the things they are listening to? How are they connecting with each other, themselves and God? The students are invited to ponder “What could you do if you believed you were loved unconditionally?"
Each retreat offering includes hands on experience through small group discussions, large group presentations, lively games, art, media and music. Every retreat brings scripture alive for our youth and
incorporates a prayer experience and ritual.
Your $20.00 donation per person includes the presenter as well as all the materials used during the retreat.
The retreat can take place at our facility or yours.
