Shake Your Beauty: Life Teen Retreat

This one-day retreat is based on the four cardinal virtues of the Catholic Church and is geared specifically to young women in high school. This retreat is meant to instruct the women on how to live their lives as women of God with the help of the divine grace that comes through living the cardinal virtues. The retreat focuses on having true beauty inside and out, by learning more about how the virtues can enhance the beauty within. This retreat offers the young women an opportunity to learn about their faith and their bond as sisters in Christ. In addition, it will serve to strengthen their commitment to living the cardinal virtues and their commitment to the Christ, His Church and to one another.

Spirit Led: Core Retreat

The overall goal of the retreat is to have Core understand and recognize the temptations that come with discipleship and ministry. In each temptation, we can choose ourselves or we can choose to love Christ more than our own wants, needs or agendas. The temptations give us the opportunity to draw close to Christ in our weakest moments and draw from his strength, example and mercy.

Spirit Led and is based on Matthew 4:1-11. Matthew 4:1 states that Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert immediately after His baptism. The retreat uses the three temptations Jesus encountered in the desert as the basis for the three main sessions.
