The annual Winter Retreat provides an opportunity for our young people to take time out of their busy lives to slow down and be with God for one faith-filled weekend. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, this time apart provides youth with an opportunity to encounter Jesus, reflect upon the movement of God in their lives, and develop what their personal response will be to the call of discipleship that they receive at their baptism. This retreat is a gift to our young people. It is a time to come to know and love God even more.
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Now the earth was formless and empty,
darkness was over the surface of the deep,
and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
And God said, 'Let there be light,' and there was light."
The 2020 retreat, themed "Chaos", will take place February 21-23, 2020, from 6:00 p.m. Friday to
