Outside the Box – Cross Road Fall Retreat
Saturday, October 2-Sunday, October 3, 2021
On Campus

All parish high school teens are welcome!

Join us for an overnight OR daytime retreat here on campus: Saturday October 2 (12 o’clock noon) – Sunday Oct 3, 2021 (10:00 am).
If your teen has been missing Mercy Camp & Mission Mercy, they will love this social justice experience of solidarity.  We’re partnering with UPLIFT Chatham for a life changing poverty simulation on Saturday afternoon, followed by poverty meal activities and fellowship.  Saturday night will be an OPTIONAL intense homelessness experience as we camp out in our “cardboard city” (outdoors and distanced).  Teens will be challenged to work together and grow in community while growing deeper into the foundations of Catholic Social Teaching. 

 Details for daytime pickup/drop off will be emailed to those who register for daytime retreat option below.

 What to bring: ONLY the following:
A cardboard box for shelter, sleeping bag, toothbrush/toothpaste, deodorant, a change of dry clothes in case of rain in a plastic bag.

 Registration Fee: $40.00 Registration is via Realm (see information below).

 Cancellation Policy: NO REFUNDS after 9/20/2021, unless spot is filled
