Going Deeper

What Is Going Deeper?

Going deeper is a retreat for youth and adults who are actively involved in their parish or have participated in other retreats and events and who have a fervor to grow in the faith. The hope is that participants will experience a much deeper understanding of how to pray and how to know what God is desiring in their life. Further, participants will discover the beauty and practice of God’s heart speaking to yours each and every day. We will be spending a majority of the time in prayer and will have the opportunity to receive the Sacraments.  

This is not a Confirmation Retreat.  There will be separate tracks of the retreat for youth and adults.

Upcoming Retreats

Devoted Retreat – March 25-27th, 2022 @ Abbey of the Hills

    •  focused on the teachings of St. Francis de Sales on the pursuit of holiness in everyday life and the universal call to holiness.

Who Can Attend?

The retreat is open to youth in grades 9-12.  However, youth in grades 9-10 are required to submit a completed Recommendation Form from their pastor that indicates that they are active in the parish and are not attending the retreat as part of their Confirmation requirements.  These forms can be sent to Eric Gallagher at egallagher@sfcatholic.org.

Adults are welcome to attend this retreat as well.  It is an overnight retreat and there will be reserved rooms for adults or you are welcome to make other sleeping arrangements for the duration of the retreat.  The retreat will consist of a separate track for the adults present.

We do ask all participants to be present for the entirety of the retreat. Students who have outside commitments during the retreat need to first get permission from our office before registering. Those requests can be sent to Grace Tibbetts at gtibbetts@sfcatholic.org
