With the blessing of His Grace Bishop Anthony, we are very excited to announce the 2nd Annual Midwest Young Adult Retreat to be held at the Maranatha Retreat Center in Muskegon, MI, on beautiful Lake Michigan. This year, we welcome Fr. Michael Nasser, the Pastor of Holy Apostles Mission in Bowling Green, KY, as our guest speaker for the weekend. Many of our young people remember him for his many years of service as the former Camp Director at the Antiochian Village and his mission work at Project Mexico. Fr. Michael is a dynamic speaker, whose talks will surely challenge and inspire us in the faith.
Maranatha is a beautiful retreat center with hotel-style accommodations, and is right on the lake. Lodging, meals, and the retreat will all take place at the retreat center. We hope to build on the success of last year’s Young Adult Retreat which was held in Livonia, MI, and was attended by 70 Young Adults from throughout our Diocese.
Please view the attached flyer (2 pages) and bulletin insert for more details about the weekend, and contact us if you have any questions. I ask that you please share this information with the Young Adults of your parish. The retreat is open to all college age, young professionals, and young adults (ages 18-40).
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of the committee members listed on the registration form.
