Montreat Conference Center, just outside Asheville

out of 50 Spaces Remaining

As young adults, our faith and spirituality give us tools to reflect on our past and move forward with courage and grace, even when the future is uncertain. In a world of constant change, this is a retreat about moving forward, facing turning points, and being sustained by that faith during times of transition.

Led by a team of men and women in their 20s and 30s, this weekend retreat is held at the renowned Montreat Conference Center, located just outside Asheville, NC. Join other young adults for a weekend of exploring the transitions that define our past, present, and future. Take time away to reflect with others and on your own, listen to the experiences of a young adult team, and celebrate Mass together as young adults. Those who have attended Charis retreats have said that the weekend:

  • deepened their prayer life,
  • connected them to others like them, whether seekers or committed Catholics,
  • enhanced their participation in parish small groups,
  • and encouraged them to continue their formation as Catholic Christians.

Double Occupancy Room – $175

Founded in 2000, Charis Ministries reaches those in their 20s and 30s throughout the country, nurturing their faith through retreats based in Ignatian spirituality. St. Francis of Assisi is a member of the Charis Partner Program.
