“But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect”.

~ 1 Peter 3:15

There is a singular reason for hope in this world, and that is Jesus Christ. He is not simply “a way, a truth and a (source of) life”, but rather, Jesus is “THE way, THE truth and THE life (John 14:6). He truly is THE reason for hope!

It is our hope that these retreats will provide you with opportunities for encounter with Jesus Christ, increase opportunities for discipleship, and strengthen the Catholic Identity and community among the youth in the Diocese of Crookston.
