High School Retreats!

3 Retreats, 1 Mission3 Retreats, 1 Mission Image

At CYM, we have THREE incredible opportunities for you to attend a retreat! A retreat is a way to take a step back from life in order to encounter God. You will have the chance to explore your faith alongside your friends and a supportive retreat team. All retreats are open to all high-schoolers, not just Confirmation candidates. Ideally, you will experience all 3 retreats in your high-school career, either as a retreatant or a team member. Consider the options below.


CONFIRMATION STUDENTS:

Retreat registration for 2019 Confirmation students is OPEN February 5 through February 11.

HOW TO REGISTER:

  1. Select your retreat preference by February 11 AT THIS LINK: https://www.stlouisparish.org/cym/retreat-registration-2019/

Once you receive an email that you are confirmed on a retreat, submit the appropriate permission form (and additional fee for Summit Lake and Teen ACTS only) to Luisa Palting at St. Louis by February 25.
