April 21, 22 & 23 - Decision Points Retreat
(High school to adult retreat) A retreat based on the Dynamic Catholic program by Matthew Kelly. The theology of Confirmation informs us that the Sacrament is about God choosing us. Yet, with our free will, we need to respond and cooperate as Mary and the saints did in order for God to do his best work through us. This retreat helps students gain a sense of how to respond and cooperate with God’s grace long after Confirmation and throughout life. Appropriate for individuals or small classes of high school teens.
April 29 & 30 - Going Out Into The Deep: Cultivating Spiritual Discipline
(Young adult ages 18 – 35) A focused retreat to explore a variety of spiritual practices within the Catholic tradition over 2,000 years. Break open the treasure while striving for deeper spirituality and a closer relationship with God.
