We have a God who loves us and wants to have a relationship with us. When we believe this truth, when we really allow it to sink into our hearts, it completely changes our lives. But how many of us actually believe it? Jesus Christ will transform your heart through a powerful experience of the sacraments, dynamic and relevant talks, and the encouraging presence of other Catholics who are on the same journey as you. And because your journey doesn’t end with the retreat, you will receive the tools you need to continue to cultivate your relationship with Christ and share His love with the world in your everyday life.
To celebrate our 20th Annual retreat we are adding an adult TRACK. We will be utilizing the dynamic speakers for the YOUTH retreat that we have all come to know and enjoy. Among them are the Franciscan Friars & Sisters of the Renewal from Albuquerque and New York City. The adults who are NOT planning to chaperone youth will gather on Saturday starting at 8:30 & will have their age appropriate talks, reconciliation, and prayer time. Jesus will be present in the center of the retreat in the Monstrance throughout the day.
