The SEARCH for Christian Maturity is a weekend experience in Christian Living.  It is designed to help you, the young Christian, as you seek to develop and grow in relationship with Jesus Christ and with others.  These goals are reached on the weekend though a program of talks, small group discussions, films, prayer and many other group experiences.

The incredible thing about SEARCH is that it is a program FOR youth that is made possible BY the youth leaders who help make the weekend happen.  It provides a unique opportunity for young people to come to know God as God works through the words, actions and lives of their peers.  In this way, each SEARCHer is able to gain a greater understanding of the meaning of Christianity in his/her own life and in the world through the thoughts of others their own age who have already begun to find insights and meanings.

Finally it is important to understand that the SEARCH weekend is not an end in itself, but rather it is the beginning of a life-long journey of love and relationship with Jesus Christ.

VOYAGE is designed to allow young Catholic Christians (7th and 8th graders) to develop a better understanding of themselves through their gifts and talents and increase their self-esteem, self-worth, and self-confidence.  Furthermore, VOYAGE tries to foster in each young person their gifts and talents and encourage them to set sail and put these gifts and talents to work for God and His holy people. Voyage is unique and is to be experienced only once!

The VOYAGE Retreat weekend will be held in the spring of 2023. Watch this page for updates.
