The retreat will begin Friday night with true time for fellowship and fun. Our evening will start with supper, followed by games, prayer, fun and more food! This portion of the retreat will be led by the OLPH Youth Ministry’s Core Team. Join us in this extended portion of the retreat as we camp out within our Church facilities. With anticipation for a full day on Saturday, sleep will be included in this overnight stay! Male and female youth will be sleeping in separate rooms. As you prepare to join us, we want to make sure that you bring the items you will need. Review the list below.
Then, as Saturday morning meets us, we will be joined by the NET Ministry team. The team will lead us through the ‘Fully Alive’ retreat with fabulous talks, great games, and deep discussions. Who are they?!? NET, the National Evangelization Team, is a group of young adult Catholics in their 20’s who travel the country, giving retreats to Catholic youth. They are truly inspiring, filled with faith, and a lot of fun!
We all want to be happy! The pursuit of happiness motivates every decision we make. Why is it, then, that we find ourselves unhappy so often? Join us as we explore the one big enough to fill our deepest desires – God Himself.
What to Bring:
• Sleeping Bag
• Toiletries (deodorant, toothbrush/toothpaste)
• Casual, Modest Clothes
• Prayer items (rosary, journal, bible)
