Retreats are a great way for junior high and high school students to "unplug" from today's secular society and take time to nurture their relationship with Christ and deepen their faith.
7th-10th grade students are required to make AT LEAST one retreat a year, but are welcome to participate in as many as they would like.
The National Evangelization Team is a group of young adults (age 19-24) from all over the U.S. who take a year or two out of their lives to travel around the country putting on Catholic-based retreats for middle and high school students. The retreats are theme-based and the team will use skits, prayer experience and inspirational talks to witness to our youth how to live out a faith-based life.
7th-8th Grade NET Retreat will be held on Wednesday Feb 5th, 2020 from 5-9pm at DSCS
9th-10 Grade NET Retreat will be held on Sunday Feb 2nd, 2020 from 11am-5pm at DSCS
Leadership Lock-in is another retreat opportunity for 6-8th grade students to attend and High School Students to participate as Peer Leaders. At this retreat, students will participate in games, dialogue, small group discussions and prayer all centered on building leadership skills. These leadership skills will help them to stay strong in their faith life while leading others to Christ.
Leadership Lock-in will be held on Friday January 10th, 2020 at St. John XXIII Parish (1800 N Wisconsin- Port Washington)
