YOUNG ADULT CONFERENCE (Retreat)

For 18 to 39 year olds, married and single, who desire to grow in their Catholic faith and meet new people. The "Southwest Kansas" title only describes where the event is held. All are welcome! 

WHAT?

After hosting a conference for the past four years, the Office of Young Adult Ministry will be holding a retreat that offers a deeper dive into prayer and communion. By way of alternating between times of individual and group prayer/reflection, one can expect to learn more about the beautiful patrimony of our church in her practices of both private and corporate worship.
