Castaway ‘What a Friend’ 2019

Come join us March 29-31 at Castaway in Detroit Lakes. Castaway is a Lenten retreat designed for 9th – 12th graders with a goal of fostering discipleship into their parishes. 

This year is special because our very own, Jason Prigge will be speaking along with members of our Student Leadership Team. The cost of the retreat is $155 and you can download the permission slip by clicking, here or visiting our Youth Ministry page. If you are searching for meaning in your faith life or are wondering what a personal relationship with Christ looks like and requires, this retreat is especially for you. So come take a chance and be challenged to grow. 

Since Jason and our Leadership Team will be up at Castaway, we want as much participation as possible!! With that being said, we need adults (21 years and over) to be willing to chaperone and walk with our young people. If you are able to commit to this, please contact the Faith Formation Office as soon as possible.

We also have an opportunity for our young adults. We need at two to three young adults who are willing to serve on Work Crew for the weekend. Service would include: meal prep and service, staffing the coffee shop and other opportunities for spiritual growth and fellowship (adults who would rather serve on Work Crew than chaperone is needed as well).

So together, as a parish, let us support our speaker, staff, leadership team, chaperones and work crew from St. Benedict’s and across our Diocese.
