A youth retreat at Marello Youth Retreat Center can be a rich, spiritual experience for young people. In a beautiful, non-threatening environment, retreatants can deepen their faith knowing that all those attending will be sharing in the experience for the same purpose! For many, a retreat provides a quiet, focused environment away from the distractions of everyday life. Jesus set the example — he himself ventured away to quiet places for prayer and contemplation. He spent time in the desert to seek God, be with him, and to understand his will for him. This “time away” is vitally necessary for everyone — young and old alike — to invite the opportunity for extraordinary spiritual growth.
A youth retreat experience . . .
While the experience is different for every person, all are touched by God in a personal and intangible way. We may not immediately witness the effects of a retreat, but the experience often defines and strengthens one’s perspectives, convictions and values as they grow in faith, and grow closer to God.
