2012 Winter Youth Retreat

2012 Winter youth retreat – December 26 to December 30.

The theme of this year’s winter retreat is: KEEPING IT REAL

This year we are trying something new. Location of the winter youth retreat, as most of you already know, is going to be at the Serbian Monastery in New Carlisle Indiana – an hour and a half drive from Chicago. We have arranged a bus to pick up and return all those from the Chicago area, as well as those arriving to Chicago. Please also know, there may be a change of location if the number of participants is overwhelming. For now, take a look at the pictures from the Monastery mentioned. It will be a place you will never forget. We will have more details after December 1.

Those who are high school Graduates may participate but as helpers – call Fr. Dragan immediately if you’re interested 317-374-3414. Please know, we can only accept so many of the youth, as well as the helpers – please respond as soon as possible to somewhat guarantee your place in this retreat. First come first serve. Thanks for your understanding. The registration fee this year will be $98 a person – since we are adding a day to the retreat. The retreat will be similar to last year – we are adding a few new things and praying for snow 🙂

At the 2012 Winter youth retreat we will have an egg coloring artist who will bring all the material (Egg for each person) in order to teach everyone present to Paint eggs. Those painted eggs will then be taken back to family, friends and churches to be auctioned off – all the proceeds will go towards supporting teens in Kosovo. That’s our service project for this year.
