High school-aged young men and women are encouraged to sign up now for the Diocese’s popular Quo Vadis and Fiat Days retreats July 17-21 at DeSales University.
The retreats – Fiat Days for young women and Quo Vadis for young men – will feature Eucharistic Adoration, an Outdoor Rosary Procession, sports and daily games, and plenty of friend-making and fellowship time.
Quo Vadis and Fiat Days are a fun and prayerful opportunity for young people to grow in their Catholic faith with their peers. They are designed to create an openness of heart for people to consider and discern all the vocational possibilities in their lives, including the Priesthood, religious life, and marriage.
“We are excited to welcome high school students from all five counties of our Diocese to this experience,” said Father Mark Searles, vocations director. “Our young people spend quality time with their Catholic peers as well as our great seminarians, priests, and sisters who serve in our Diocese to pray together, to place our hope in Christ, and to surrender our fears and anxieties to Him while also having a lot of fun.”
The retreats will be centered on Padre Pio’s reflection to “pray, hope, and don’t worry.” There will be a field trip to the Padre Pio Shrine in Barto to explore and learn more about the life of this saint.
All who are ages 14-18, including newly graduated seniors, are eligible to attend.
Registrations are due by Wednesday, June 29. Late registrations and walk-ins will not be permitted.
The fee to attend is $100 if registered by Thursday, June 16, and $150 per participant for registrations thereafter. Scholarships are available.
