Jr. High Retreat
Category: Events & Programs
Our third annual Archdiocesan Junior High Retreat will be held at Camp Abbey on February 23-25, 2018. The retreat is open to anyone in grades 5-7. The theme for this retreat is ALIVE. We will focus on what it means to be fully alive and to recognize Christ living in each person. The weekend will include a variety of activities, talks, prayer experiences, the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist, music, and games. For those who have been to the retreat previously, there will be new elements to ensure that it is a meaningful experience even for repeat attendees. Most of all, it will be an opportunity to spend time with other young people from across the Archdiocese!
If you have young people who are interested in attending the retreat, they can register online here. You will still need to print and mail in the medical and liability forms found in the downloads section of our website.
Knowing that space could fill quickly, I ask that young people and their parents please make decisions as soon as possible as the deadline will approach quickly. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 504-836-0551, ext. 3226 or Cecilia Matherne at ext. 3221.
