Abide In Me Youth Retreat 2019

Back for a third year is Abide In Me, a Eucharistic centered, Catholic retreat that can set ablaze the hearts of your high school youth!

 Abide in Me is a conference-style retreat that draws young people into a deep and lasting union with Jesus Christ, especially through a sacramental encounter. The retreat aims to:

  1. Promote knowledge and love of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament - the source and summit of Christian life.

  2. Inspire devotion to Mary, the Mother of God.

  3. Encourage fidelity to the teachings of the Catholic Church and the Magisterium.

  4. Awaken discernment of Holy Vocations as ordained by God and His Holy Church.

 The greatest mission of the retreat is to give high school youth an encounter with our Eucharistic Lord as the Blessed Sacrament is exposed throughout the weekend. A Catholic band is present for praise and worship, and the highlight of the weekend is a unique and intimate encounter with the Blessed Sacrament on Saturday night when the youth have the opportunity for individual Adoration of Jesus and can touch the humeral veil, recalling the healing that the hemorrhaging woman received by only touching the cloak of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke.

Again, we invite you and the high school parish youth, grades 9-12, to join us for this exciting retreat weekend! Abide In Me is a diocese-wide event that will be held at Corpus Christi Catholic School in Bloomington, IL on November 1 starting at 5:00pm, running through November 3 at 12:30pm. All retreat events will take place at Corpus Christi. Female participants will be housed on Corpus Christi’s campus. Male participants will be housed at Central Catholic High School.

Registration for this retreat will run September 2nd through October 18th. Complete this form download form and bring it to the Parish Office with your fee by 9/18.
