Retreats & Converences

Luke 18

The Luke 18 retreat provides a powerful experience for 8th Graders. Luke 18 opens their eyes to the presence and love of God, who embraces them just as they are. Led by high school and college students from St. Nicholas, St. Clare, and Corpus Christi churches.

The retreat features high-energy games, songs, skits, personal sharing, and a series of faith and life talks by high school students.

They’ll be talking about Luke 18 for years.

* With current safety protocols of COVID-19 in mind, Luke 18 had been modified to be a "mini" version this year - evenings on the campus of St. Nicholas Church with students grouped in pods of no more thatn 25 people. Participants will be required to wear masks, social distance, use hand sanitizer frequently, wash hands frequently, and all snacks will be individually packaged.*

Luke 18 is held every year on the 3rd weekend of January.

Luke 18 2021 will be held on January 15-16, 2021
