Going Deeper Retreat!

Going deeper is a retreat for youth who are actively involved in their parish or have participated in other retreats and events and who have a fervor to grow in the faith. The hope is that participants will experience a much deeper understanding of how to pray and how to know what God is desiring in their life. Further, participants will discover the beauty and practice of God’s heart speaking to yours each and every day. We will be spending time in silence and prayer and will have the opportunity to receive the Sacraments. 

The Abbey of the Hills Inn & Retreat Center, Marvin, SD

Friday October 11 to Sunday October 13, 2019

Who Can Attend?
The retreat is open to youth in grades 9-12. However, youth in grades 9-10 are required to receive a letter of recommendation from their pastor that indicates that they are active in the parish and are not attending the retreat as part of their Confirmation requirements.

The cost for the retreat is $100.
