Mary Queen of Peace will be hosting Luke 18 Retreat for 8th graders in October 2020!
Luke 18 is a weekend long retreat inviting 8th graders to grow deeper in their faith —to help them see that they are not only the future of our Church, but they are also the Church right now. Through high-energy games, skits, songs, personal sharing, and a series of talks given by high school students, the “Lukers” as we call them are encouraged to have fun and grow in their faith. The weekend offers the opportunity to experience God’s Love on a more personal level, and the Lukers are challenged to share that love with those around them.
Luke 18 is special because it is youth administering to youth. High school students (referred to as “Disciples”) give talks about things that are important to your child right now and help them find ways to welcome God into their everyday lives. The retreat is organized and coordinated by the Youth Ministry Team at Mary Queen of Peace, but the success of the retreat will come from the help of the High School Teens, our music minister, adult volunteers, and the Lukers coming with an open mind and heart.
The retreat will take place October 16-18, 2020. We will start Friday evening, and end Sunday with 5pm Mass. The theme for the retreat is New Fire. There will be no sleep houses this year. You will need to drop off and pick up your teen at Mary Queen of Peace each day of the retreat weekend.
The cost of the retreat is $120.00. This will cover the cost of meals, supplies, T-shirts, etc. If the cost is a problem, please contact Chris Grote, Director of Youth Ministry.
