Four Twelve Youth Retreat

You and your school/youth group are cordially invited to the FourTwelveRetreat. A weekend retreat experience taking place at the Camp Living Waters Retreat Center in Loranger, LA on Friday through Sunday, November 10th through 12th.

 

We are hoping for 200+ teens at this retreat.  Our whole idea is to bring the local area youth ministers and campus minister together.  We will deal with the cost and hassle of putting on the retreat, and all you have to do is have your Parish/School sponsor your cost for coming.  Then sign your teens up, and you have a retreat that you can take your teens on, and you will be there guiding them through the entire retreat.  If you can't attend, no problem! Just send them and we will plug them into an appropriate small group!  

 

The theme for this year's retreat is Alive: Embracing the Cross.  This is based off the scripture verse Matthew 16:24-27.  Our focus is to help the teens dive deep into the truth of our faith, that the walk to calvary is beautiful and full of grace.  We want them to understand that staying on the mountain is not where the true beauty lies in our faith walk!

 

Attached here is the preliminary scheduleretreat flyer, and registration link.  We are inviting each Campus Minister/Youth Minister to attend with their School or Youth Group, so that you can be there to walk them through their retreat journey.  Youth Ministers will be in charge of facilitating their small group.  We would also like to filter random retreaters to the appropriate Youth Group.  We hope that this annual retreat will provide an opportunity for local campus ministers/youth ministers, who may not have the capability to put on a retreat this size, to easily attend with their teens at a minimal cost to the parish. Our hope is this retreat will foster community between Campus Ministers/Youth Ministers and Schools/Youth Groups, that can extend past retreat! If you yourself cannot attend its no problem to send teens, we will have adults there to facilitate small groups!

 

The cost of the retreat for Youth Ministers and Teens is non-refundable fee of $200.  This includes room and board, four meals, one t-shirt, dynamic speakers, including key speaker/hip hop artist Oscar "Two-Ten" Rivera, John Finch & Band.  

We are asking everyone to go to this link to register: 

http://www.maryqueenofpeace.org/fourtwelve/retreat

 

Registration Deadline is Wednesday, October 11th. If you would like to register as a group, please send a check, the group registration form with count of teens/adults, parish in subject line of check to address below. Once we have received your check, a confirmation email will be sent to you with a discount code for each adult/teen to complete their registration online. We must have the online Liability/Medical Form & Code of Conduct completed prior to the retreat. A reminder email will be sent three weeks prior to the retreat, including a list of items to bring i.e. toiletries, sleeping bag, pillow etc.
