Weekend Retreat for Young Men | Feb 2024



Retreat for College Students & Young Professionals | Friday-Sunday, 16-18 February

A retreat is a time of quiet reflection and prayer, away from the daily routine, to look at one’s life in the presence of Jesus Christ: to see what is going well, to see what needs to change, to make resolutions, and to begin again. It is also a good moment to grow in our relationship with Jesus, to learn to love God more.
