On Saturday, April 13th-14th 2019, Holy Trinity Parish will be having an all-night vigil retreat for youth in grades 9-12. We will be staying awake all night praying with the Blessed Sacrament, playing crazy games, and reflecting on Jesus’ passion and crucifixion.
The retreat begins with the 5pm Mass on Saturday and will be ending at 8:30am on Sunday morning.
Please note: for their safety, participants will not be permitted to drive themselves to and from the event.
“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: 41
Holy Trinity’s Vigil Retreat is an opportunity for youth to grow closer to Christ by reflecting on His passion and death. Youth will be staying awake all night “praying and playing”; there will be all-night adoration, and sessions on the different aspects of Jesus’ final days on earth. The challenge and sacrifice of staying awake all night is meant to be a visible sign of the commitment to growing closer to Jesus.
