Our Life Teen high-school youth group puts on multiple retreats throughout the year. Whether we are going away for a weekend, or staying at our parish, retreats are a beautiful way for our parish’s youth to take time to focus on their personal relationship with God.
We have two retreats planned for this year: our Palm Sunday Vigil Retreat on March 24th-25th, 2018 and our Chaos Spring Retreat on May 11th-13th. More info on both of these events can be found below.
Palm Sunday Vigil Retreat:
When: March 24th at 5pm to March 25th at 8am.
Where: Holy Trinity Parish
“So, could you not stay awake with me one hour? Stay awake and pray that you may not come into the time of trial; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Matthew 26: 40b-41
At our Palm Sunday Vigil Retreat we will be staying awake all night praying with the Blessed Sacrament, playing crazy games, and focusing on Jesus’ passion and crucifixion. Our intent it to start off our Holy Week right by focusing on what Jesus did for us, and making the sacrifice of staying awake to grow closer to Him. We will be beginning with Mass on Saturday evening, and stay awake until 8:30am the next day.

Life Teen “Chaos” Spring Retreat:
When: May 11th at 5:00pm to May 13th at 4pm
Where: Our Lady of Victory Camp
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. Genesis 1:3
For our spring retreat, Life Teen will be heading to Our Lady of Victory Camp to take some time away! Our retreat, titled “Chaos”, will be all about God’s creative power, and the peace that comes with a relationship with Him. God makes order out of chaos, and gives us peace in the chaos of our lives. Our retreat will be a weekend of games, music, and fun, with the beautiful Sacraments and prayer that help us to grow closer to our God who saves us from chaos.
