Young Adult Advent Retreat
Saturday, December 19 from 9:30am-9pm
All Young Adults between the ages of 18 and 35 are welcome to join us for a day long retreat.
Fr. Lappe will be hearing confessions and expose the Blessed Sacrament for Adoration. We will attend the 5pm Mass as a group.
Our retreat patron is St. Joseph.
St. Joseph was an ordinary man gifted with an extraordinary mission. This mission was quite difficult to fulfil given his cultural traditions and restrictive laws. We too, as children of God, are ordinary people prone to sin and discouragement yet are still called to an extraordinary life.
We also have speakers coming in to discuss the following topics:
“Let there be Humans” Goal: God created male and female with distinct purposes and intentional diversity. When working in union with our biological makeup we are able to best fulfil God’s plan for man.
“Know Thy Self” Goal: We must grow in self-knowledge in order to connect with the world in the way Christ has designed. Our humanity has created many obstacles to pull us away from union with Christ, by strengthening our power of will and becoming more self-aware we will be able to fulfill this challenge.
“Let’s Get Intimate” Goal: God is communal. We must learn the balance and boundaries of intimacy within the pyramid of importance: Communal, Familial, Spousal, and Divine. I hope for this talk to be a Men’s and Women’s Session talk.
Cost: $10/person (All meals will be provided.)
Where: The retreat will be on campus. It will be a great retreat, hope you can come!
