“Come Follow Me” Retreats

The Come, Follow Me weekend retreat creates an environment where a personal  encounter with Christ is possible.  By encountering Christ, you will develop an ever-lasting relationship with Jesus.  Through your personal journey with Christ, you transform your four fundamental relationships: with God, with self, with others and the world.

Come together in fellowship and friendship while rekindling and deepening your relationship with Christ!

Retreats are held at the Fr. Bernard Youth Center, Mt. Angel
