The Timothy 4 Retreat is designed to promote a deeper sense of community by bringing together high school students who minister to junior high students with the support of youth ministers.
Timothy 4 is a parish based retreat in the same style as Luke 18. An entirely different experience than Luke 18, this retreat also happens at the parish and engages multiple groups of parishioners in a weekend experience designed specifically for 8th grade students. The retreat is organized and coordinated by a parent volunteer team and the youth ministry office. The retreat weekend will be led by the youth ministry and a team of high school students who will be presenting talks and lead small discussion groups throughout the weekend.
It is obviously a significant undertaking and requires a strong team of volunteers. If you would like to help make this weekend happen, please let us know.
