A: Yes. We will have a priest there on Friday evening, and Saturday morning. He will celebrate Masses on Friday and Saturday morning. We will have a Communion Service by a Deacon on Sunday morning.


Q: Who can participate?

A: All are welcome. For most of our retreats the majority of participants were adults. A comment was made by a young man that participated in one of our retreats that encouraged us to include youth and younger children.


He stated that he appreciated that they were included in the talks and discussions and that it was good for youth to hear the concerns and wisdom of adults and that it was good to be heard by adults instead of always being separated out. Thus, we encourage parents to bring youth, 1st Holy Communion age and up.
