YAC Retreat

We offer two retreats each year:  Fall (October 23, 2021) and Spring (April 29-May 1, 2022). We travel to a retreat center in Maryland for our retreats, which are peer-led with opportunities to share in small groups and celebrate the Sacraments. They are in a format that integrates Ignatian spirituality with contemporary issues that are important to us as young adults.

Young adults are invited to attend other parish retreats as well. Click here to view more opportunities to make an Ignatian retreat at Holy Trinity.

Fall 2021 YAC Retreat

On 20 May 1521, St. Ignatius was seriously injured when a cannonball shattered his legs. This moment marks the beginning of Ignatius’ spiritual journey of conversion and a more closely following of Christ. It opened up a new dream for Ignatius; one he had not thought of earlier. He started seeing the world and all things new with the eyes of Christ. On this one-day retreat, young adults (20s and 30s) are invited to explore the invitation to deeper conversion through peer and catechetical talks, and small group discussions, personal prayer, and the celebration of the Eucharist. Spiritual direction and the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be offered for those who wish. There will also be the opportunity to explore the retreat center's hiking trails and beautiful views.

All participants are required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 with an FDA or WHO-approved vaccine (exceptions for medical reasons must be discussed with Catherine Heinhold before registration can be confirmed). The retreat will take place both indoors (masks required) and outdoors (weather permitting).

Time: October 23rd, 10am - 7pm
Location: Mar-Lu-Ridge Retreat Center, 3200 Mar Lu Ridge Road, Jefferson, MD 21755 (carpools will be organized)
Cost: We are not charging for this one-day retreat. If you are able, we suggest a donation of $25 to Holy Trinity Church to support the continuation of our young adult ministry.

Registration for the fall YAC Retreat is closed.
