     Discovery is a peer-ministered retreat for 9th and 10th grade students which encourages teenagers to discover their own identity and their relationship with God. The retreat is incredibly dynamic with talks, small group interaction and community-building experiences. It is based on the steps of evangelization and helps the young person know Jesus in faith! This is a great opportunity for freshman and sophomores to grow in their faith. As a reminder, these retreats should not be used as make-up for a Confirmation retreat. Click here for application

     Christian Awakening is a peer-ministered retreat which enables the teenagers to come to know and experience Christ, and to see him in themselves and others. Youth are invited to explore ways of serving others and becoming better, more fully committed Christians. Christian Awakening (CA) builds on the foundational elements of the Discovery Retreat and is great for forming leaders in a parish community. This retreat is for 11th or 12th graders who are ready to live their faith in a profound way. As a reminder, these retreats should not be used as make-up for a Confirmation retreat. Click here for application!
