The Winter Retreat is back and coming up very fast! The theme of this year's retreat is to be announced shortly!

We are blessed to have 4 priests joining us during this retreat!!!!

The first priest, Fr. Jerome Lavigne (Pastor at St. Peters), is a dynamic, passionate and energetic speaker, who has spoken in many parishes throughout the Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary and will certainly inspire and encourage us in our own faith journey. The second priest will be our guest speaker and recently ordained to the priesthood in June of this year, Fr. Cristino Bouvette. The third priest, another guest speaker, is Fr. Nathan Siray. Fr. Nathan is the Associate Pastor at St. Michael's Parish in Calgary and we will be very blessed to hear his vibrant talks. Lastly, our fourth priest is the UCCC’s new Chaplain Fr. Minh Doan who will be available along with the other priests for the sacrament of reconciliation.

Cost: $30.00 - includes food, lodging and the most fun you can have in one weekend.

Like the Fall Retreat, the Winter Retreat is also an amazing way to meet awesome Catholic young adults from all around Alberta and grow in our faith together!

We will be meeting Friday February 8th at 5:15pm at the St. Pius Church hall for pizza and carpooling organizing =)

Finally, we will be collecting money at St. Pius X church Friday before we all leave to the camp. You can also give your money to our Chaplain Father Minh at Multi Faith Chaplain's Centre (mbdoan@ucalgary.ca) or let us know if you need another arrangement to be made. If you are unable to pay please let us know we will gladly accommodate.

Please bring a Bible, notebook, sleeping bag/pillow, and all other weekend necessities.

Sorry folks! Registration is over as all spots are full. God bless!
