One of the more defining aspects of the Life Teen movement is our reverence for music. We believe that music can be divinely inspired and thus turn our hearts and souls to God. Music has the power to attract teens to Mass in ways that we can’t even understand. Music matters to our Church!
This is why we look for every opportunity to support music ministers who serve in our parishes. This is why we’re hosting the Life Teen Musician’s Retreat in one month. It’s going to be an awesome three days! If you need a little convincing to make the journey to Camp Covecrest, keep reading…
- It’s good for your parish. There’s no doubt that a retreat is good for your soul, but did you know it’s also good for your parish? Renewed music ministers bring new zeal to their ministry. The music at every liturgy will be more authentic and inspiring.
- It’s economical. The three day retreat with meals and lodging is only $165. Plus the retreat begins in one month (Sept 21) which means the flights to Atlanta are still affordable. I booked a round-trip flight from Phoenix to Atlanta three weeks before takeoff and it only cost me $212.00 with all the fees. How can you beat that?

Covecrest is heaven. Seriously, have you ever been to Life Teen Camp Covecrest? The rolling mountains of north Georgia are gorgeous. The waterfalls are epic. The accommodations are sweet. And the Catholic community there is unlike anything else you’ve ever experienced. (There is a reason why summer camp at Covecrest sells out in one day!)
- It’s good timing. The summer has passed, students are getting back to school, and your parish is settling in for a new beginning. Soon you’ll be recruiting new people into your parish music ministry. Why not get a head-start with a retreat? (Also, the retreat is Wednesday through Friday, so you won’t need to get anyone to fill in for you for weekend Masses.)
- You’ll meet great people. Our last Musician’s Retreat was a packed house with people from all over the country. It was a great place to connect with other Catholic music ministers. I will add too that the leadership team for the retreat is exceptional. Paul George will be the retreat host, and the talented Greg Boudreaux and Sarah Kroger will be leading worship.
