Be Honest:

Are You Taking Your Relationship with God Seriously?

As a young person today, it can be tough not to give in to what the world says you should think, wear, and do. In today’s world, God is a myth, going to Mass on Sunday is old-fashioned, and praying isn’t worth it.

It’s time to remember the truth.

God is real, and He desires to have a relationship with YOU.

At the Duc in Altum, Catholic Youth Retreat, spend some time getting right with God and experiencing how deeply He loves you.

This weekend retreat is a great way to get back on track spiritually through the sacraments, connect with old and new friends, and have plenty of fun.


| Separate retreats are held for guys and girls, age 15-18. |

Knowing Jesus

2022-2023 Retreat Theme

"I am the good shepherd, and I know mine and mine know me" (John 10:14). Do you know Jesus or just know about Jesus? What does it mean to know Jesus? How can you hear His voice in your daily life? Join us for this Catholic youth retreat to grow in your relationship with Jesus through a dual focus on Scripture and the Eucharist. Both the November 18-20, 2022 and February 17-20, 2023 retreats will focus on this theme.
