Join OLW’s Youth Ministry For Our Annual Kairos Retreat: February 18-21, 2022

Posted on November 16, 2021 by Published by

High School Juniors & Seniors are enthusiastically invited to attend Kairos 10, a 4-day overnight retreat. Kairos is a powerful 4-day retreat where teens are offered a safe place, where they can be themselves, grow in fellowship, learn more about God and reflect on their lives. Kairos is led by teens and adult volunteers.

Each year thousands of teens go on Kairos. They had their own reasons to attend. This is the time for you to choose for yourself. We all come for our own reasons. We all leave with a renewed understanding. Maybe the best reason to go is that someone cares enough about you to invite you. Talk to past Kairos participants, youth ministers or priests and ask them why. You owe it to yourself to explore why so many people go!

If you are a parishioner that would like to volunteer at Kairos or are able to help a teen attend a Kairos retreat by donating, please contact Arielle Joaquin via the contact information below.
