We are excited to be offering an Awakening High School Retreat this year! Awakening is a three-day, two-night retreat for sophomores, juniors, and seniors in high school. This retreat is an intense weekend designed to help teens draw closer to Christ and truly “retreat” from their busy lives for the weekend. This encounter seeks to share the great love of God with each and every youth. The model is based on Search and Cursillo retreats and includes many surprises and beautiful experiences. We encourage your high school youth to take advantage of this amazing opportunity.
The Bozeman and Helena Deaneries collaborate to make this retreat possible, and this year the retreat will be hosted by Bozeman. The retreat will be held February 1st-3rd at the Bozeman Catholic Community Center and the cost is $50. There will be a link after you complete the online registration form for online payment either by credit card or through your checking account. We don’t want cost to be an issue so please contact John Kawalski if you have any questions/concerns.
Much of the retreat is a surprise for the youth so we do not want to go into detail here, but you will receive more information about the retreat once your youth is registered. Registration Deadline is January 22nd.

Confirmation this year is sponsored through Resurrection University Parish and is available for 10th-12th grade students who have completed their first year of active faith formation participation. Please understand that this is not necessarily our preference, but rather this comes from the Bishop of the Diocese of Helena.
