Attention Young Adults! Register for Archdiocesan "Seekers" Retreat by April 17
April 9, 2012



Young adults can sometimes have difficulty finding parish events and activities that are tailored to their unique stage in life, but the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston is offering a new retreat this spring designed precisely with their demographic in mind.

The Seekers' Retreat, April 27-29, is meant for adults from ages 20 to 39 desiring to renew and deepen their faith and build Christian relationships with other adults in the Houston area.

Based on Ignatian Spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the Jesuits, the retreat will include talks and small group sessions led by other young adults, as well as spiritual direction, time in silence and the sacraments, said Roberto Navarro, director of the Young Adult and Campus Ministry office for the Archdiocese.

There is space for roughly 30 retreat participants, so he encouraged those interested to register early. The retreat will be held at the Christian Renewal Center, 1515 Hughes Rd., Dickinson, which is a suburb of Houston.

Registration for the retreat costs $125 through April 17th and $200 until April 23rd, but financial assistance is available. For more information about the Seekers' Retreat, visit www.charisministries.org or contact Roberto Navarro at (713) 741-8780 or rnavarro@archgh.org), or Elda Skrehot (713)-741-8778 or yacm@archgh.org with Young Adult and Campus Ministry Office.
