The Youth Department, with the blessing of His Grace, Bishop Longin, is pleased to announce this year’s Annual Winter Youth retreat: “Take Refuge,” to be held at the New Gračanica Monastery from Monday, December 26th through Friday, December 30th, 2022. The Winter Youth Retreat (poster attached) for high school and college students (only) is usually the most famous event for young people and the registration fills up within hours when we put it on social media.
You (as parish priests) have the right of way, so please contact the young people from your church and give them the link so they can register as soon as possible. Sign-up for the retreat is on a first come first serve basis – space is limited to 75 retreaters.
Please share the following link with the high school students at your parish: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd_XyD9DH1-FQzzTmp1EBNsHyLWTXG7aXvCSqW-n_oxh4PCcw/viewform?usp=sf_link
If you have college students who are interested in being Serving Leaders during the retreat, you can share the Serving Leaders form with them: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdAhY7mrQYRlzpASHugTxm7wIO_EHSw6-5rU3yNYh-mwGt10g/viewform?usp=sf_link
Tomorrow at 9 AM we will be posting the official ad and registration form on social media for the youth to apply.
In Christ – for the Diocesan Youth Department,
Rev. Bojan Banovic
