YAC Retreat

We offer two retreats each year: Spring (May 8, 2021) and Fall (October 22-24, 2021). We usually 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. The Spring 2021 retreat will be held on a Saturday or Sunday in a local park.

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.

Spring 2021 YAC Retreat

Retreat TItle: You Are Always With Me

Saturday, May 8, 2021 • 10am - 6pm
At the Cabin John Group Picnic Area in Bethesda, Md.

Along with the entire globe, young adults in our area and beyond have struggled to cope and find meaning in a year of isolation and grief. However, if we are given the time and space to reflect, we may find surprising moments of consolation interspersed with the hardships. As we slowly emerge from the worst of the pandemic, Holy Trinity’s Young Adult Community invites you to gather and prayerfully reflect on the consolations, desolations and graces of the past year, while also listening for how God might be inviting you to act in the future. Led by St. Ignatius’ Examen,  we will utilize peer talks, and small group discussions, and personal prayer to explore how God is inviting us to integrate this past year into our futures. This retreat is for young adults (20s and 30s, single and married) at all stages of their faith lives.

Cabin John pavilions

The retreat will be held at the Cabin John Group Picnic Area in Bethesda, Md. We will offer (masked, single-passenger) rides from the Grovesnor-Strathmore Metro station, which is an 8-minute car-ride away, and from some neighborhoods in the DMV. When we are gathered in a group, face masks covering nose and mouth will be required, and social distancing will be observed throughout the retreat. The picnic area has two covered pavilions and dedicated bathrooms. In the event of inclement weather, the retreat will be shortened and moved to Zoom.
