Retreat: The Franciscan community offers many opportunities for retreats throughout the year. These retreats vary by location, duration, and theme to suit many people’s needs.
Who: Young adults ages 23-35What: The theme of this annual retreat is based on Franciscan spirituality. Escape the pressures of school and work and enjoy a calm weekend getting in touch with your spirituality. In a world full of obligations, social pressures, Netflix, and smart phones, this weekend allows you disconnect from the grid and to connect with your peers and with God. It is a great opportunity to get back to basics and to focus your attention on what is truly important in life – community, identity, and the Gospel. Young adults will be given the opportunity to see God through the eyes of St. Francis and will return to the everyday life with a fresh perspective and renewed commitment to spirituality. Other than this annual retreat, every year the Friars provide a camping and kayaking retreat at Red River Gorge area in Kentucky in the month of August.
