Journey to Renewal: Young Adult Lenten Retreat

March 20 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am PDT

Do you need a space for renewal and reflection this Lent?

Join young adults across Western Washington on a Lenten journey centered around the themes of Pope Francis’ Lenten message, “Lent: a Time for Renewing Faith, Hope and Love.” Kelly Hickman will lead us through the morning reflection from 9:30am-11:30am PST, via Zoom. The retreat will incorporate periods off Zoom and offer optional activities for prayer and reflection in the afternoon. Thus, we encourage you to set time apart (on your own or with your household).

The morning reflection will include simultaneous interpretation into Spanish, and materials will be available in both English and Spanish.

In the afternoon, we are offering the opportunity for participants to visit Camp Don Bosco, between 1 and 6pm. You will receive the link to RSVP to the optional camp visit once you register for the retreat. There will be no gathering, communal meals, or group activities. The intention of the in-person portion of the retreat is to allow for people to have some time away, go for a walk or hike, and have a chance to have quiet prayer in an open space. The chapel will be open for prayer as well, one household at a time. People will be required to wear masks. Those who do not belong to the same household will be asked to maintain physical distancing. Those who participate in the in-person portion will need to fill a pre-screening questionnaire on the day of the retreat (you will receive this by email). Families are welcome!
There is no fee to attend this retreat, but in the spirit of Lent, we encourage you to consider donating to CRS Rice Bowl. You can donate here.

Anyone in their 20s and 30s is welcome to join for reflection, prayer, and community. If you have any questions or you would like more information please email ana.bailey@seattlearch.org.
