Years 7-8 Retreat
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6
As young people begin secondary school, they begin to make the choices that determine who they will become. The retreat Come to the Father provides an opportunity for retreatants in Year 7 and Year 8 to encounter the person of Christ and make the choices that enable them to become disciples of a loving Father. Inspired by the conversion of St. Paul in Acts 9, each session sheds light upon the concept of a conversion of heart. The retreat provides concrete and practical options for young people to enter into a relationship with the Lord by following the One who calls Himself the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6). Each of the themes explored on retreat is expounded upon in small group sessions facilitated by our young adult missionaries. All who attend the retreat walk away equipped to grow in their prayer life. By exploring the truth laid out for us in Scripture, the retreat enables young people to understand and choose a life with Christ.
OPTION: Residential retreat or day retreat for up to 32 pupils.
