“And in the morning, a great while before day, he rose and went out to a lonely place, and there he (Jesus) prayed.” – Mark 1:35
Jesus would often go off by himself to pray and be with God. Many people throughout Scripture would encounter God out in the wilderness. He uses times when we take a break from our everyday lives and distractions to communicate with us and reveal himself. Candidates are asked to disconnect from their regular lives in order to commune with God. Retreats will help youth encounter Christ in a new way and bond with others through activities, prayer, small groups and talks.

“Behold, I make all things new.” Revelation 21:5
From His throne in heaven to the depths of your heart, these words of Jesus are an invitation for you to receive the new life that He alone can give. He is longing to elevate your life above the things of this world – to help you overcome fear, anxiety, confusion and doubt. He wants to break the things that hold you down and give you freedom from sin. He is calling you to follow Him and enter into a transforming experience with His love, grace, and mercy! He can make you new! This summer, join over 50,000 other Catholic teens at one of our 25 youth conferences and experience the joy of following Christ and being elevated by His love.
The Sacraments are the highlight of the weekend. Teens will join in two dynamic Eucharistic Liturgies during the weekend and will be given numerous opportunities to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. There is also a powerful time of Eucharistic Exposition and Adoration. Many youth have come to a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit through this weekend.
If you are beginning your walk with Christ, need strength to continue the journey, or just ready to rejoice in the many blessings He has given you, then this is the conference for you!
