“When you call me, when you go to pray to me, I will listen to you. When you look for me, you will find me. Yes, when you seek me with all your heart, you will find me with you, says the Lord, and I will change your lot. – Jeremiah 29:12-14a
See what the kids have to say about the Retreat…
Here is a sampling of answers kids gave from last year’s anonymous evaluations.
What were the most surprising things you learned about Prayer, Adoration or Confession?
That you can feel completely different
All my emotions that I have been holding in
You become very calm and one with yourself
God always has something in store and you might not even know it
Confession is very relieving
What would be the one thing you would tell someone else about the retreat
They should go it’s amazing and they don’t want to miss it
It brought me closer to God
Make Friends, Lean on them, It’s more fun that way
It is life changing
You should go feel the Holy Spirit
Be you, the real you and bring tissues. Enough to share.
What is the most surprising thing you learned about yourself?
I do believe
I’m holding way too much in
I didn’t really have a relationship with God but I’m getting closer
That I’m not perfect and that’s ok
I’m not alone
Anything else you want to share?
Overall, this is a milestone in my life
I’m so happy I came here. It was something totally different. I want to become a teen leader in High School.
