What Is Awakening?
Bayou Awakening is a retreat for college age young adults (18-25), led by young adults, that focuses on deepening your relationship with Christ. There are several talks, including: "What is a Christian?" "Reconciliation," "Prayer," "Faith," "Discernment," "The Mystical Body of Christ." There are opportunities for small group conversation, quiet prayer time, mass, and confession. Join us for a great weekend of spiritual renewal! The retreat is offered twice a year, in the fall and the spring.
