Youth Retreats... Oh, yeah!

"YES" 
#133 | TBA |  2020 
For ALL youth in 6th - 8th Grade

A Youth Encounter Spirit (Y.E.S.) weekend brings together members of the 6th-8th-grade youth of the Diocese of Texas as a Christian community. The 6th-8th-grade participants and adult sponsors from youth groups among the parishes and mission churches of our diocese become members of the Y.E.S. family.

 

The focus of Y.E.S. is on "who Christ is." Y.E.S. helps foster a clearer appreciation of self, richer relationships with others, and a deeper experience with Jesus. Being part of the Y.E.S. family is fun. The weekend affords a loving environment in which to enjoy the warmth of a personal relationship with our Father and his unconditional love. Y.E.S. is one of the many ways God is equipping the youth (and adults) of this diocese for service in furtherance of His eternal purposes. 

DEADLINE TO REGISTER: TBA

 

Scholarships Available!

 

If you are a youth that has already experienced Y.E.S., you are welcome to return  for 

the Lock-In or to work on Staff!

It's a FUN, new way to experience Y.E.S....this time, from behind the scenes!

DEADLINE TO REGISTER: TBA

SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE…

"HAPPENING"

#167 | April | 17-19 | 2020 

For ALL youth in 9th - 12h Grade

 

A Happening is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Through this experience, the Happening encourages participation in one's own parish and youth group. Is Christianity relevant to youth today? Can it penetrate the many areas of school life? Can it transform the world and keep up with changing times? The Happening movement thinks so. It does not propose a new type of spirituality but provides a method through which one's spirituality may be developed, nourished, lived, and shared in fellowship with Christians willing to dedicate their lives to God in an ongoing manner. The Happening movement believes that Jesus Christ has and will continue to make a difference in the world and in individual lives. Those attending Happening listen to thought-provoking and challenging talks given by members of the staff and clergy. These talks are designed to help the Happeners get to know God. After each talk, the opportunity is given for questions and discussion in small groups.

DEADLINE TO REGISTER: April 6, 2019
