Cursillo Crucifix Youth Encounter Christ

Next Youth Encounter is YE #98, March 16 - 18. A list of applicants will be posted below. Please keep them in your prayers as they prepare to meet Christ in a new Light.

Youth Encounter weekend will be held at Marygrove Retreat Center in Garden, MI. The program, for those 15-20 years of age, is designed to help young people understand and experience the Catholic Faith through a series of presentations and Christian witness talks delivered by young people. Two priests and several adults also participate in the weekend, giving presentations and chaperoning.

Many of the adult lay leaders throughout the diocese, as well as several diocesan priests and seminarians, have attended Youth Encounter as teenagers or have served on weekend teams. Some credit the weekend with sparking their powerful conversion and leading to the discovery of their vocation.

The retreat is open to youth of all Christian faith traditions. There is a follow-up program which will help young people carry out at home what was learned on the weekend. Due to large donations, the fee for this year's Youth Encounter has been lowered to $25 per person.

For more information and registration forms about Youth Encounter, contact Marygrove Retreat Center at 644-2771 or Barry and Yvonne Voss at (906) 563-5187 or (906) 396-0887.

Please keep in mind that this list is updated on a continual bases, which can mean daily. Some individuals have to drop out at the last minute and others are just finding out about the weekend encounter. Please check regularly, if you have an interest.
