Faith Formation…

Notice #1
As adults in the Catholic Church, it is vital to your spiritual growth to continue to learn about your faith.
It is also important to take time to step away from the busyness of the world to reflect upon your life & your relationship with God. This will be the first of three notices of opportunities to intentionally slow down so God can speak to you.
CYE (Catholic Youth Expeditions) in Baily's Harbor offers opportunities to retreat from the busy world. 

  • High school expeditions that include hiking, and other activities will be held Dec. 9-11, 2022 and Feb. 17-19, 2023. 
  • A silent retreat for boys will be held April 14-16, 2023
  • A silent retreat for girls will be held April 28-30, 2023

Notice #2
CYE (Catholic Youth Expeditions) offers opportunities for young adults (post high school to 30 years of age).

  • An expedition will take place Jan. 13-15, 2023
  • Silent retreats will take place.

Notice #3
CYE also offers retreats for adults (31 years and older).  Adult silent retreats will take place on Dec. 16-18, 2022; Jan. 27-29, 2023; and March 10-12, 2023.
When was the last time you took some time to be
alone with our Lord?
