This retreat center is a Catholic non-profit establishment dedicated to youth. Staff run retreats for Catholic high school students in the Chicago area. Many participating schools serve families of lower socio-economic status. The goal of our retreats is to allow students to be more authentically themselves with their classmates, get to know each other, and reflect on who God is to them. We do activities to stimulate community bonds among school groups, and invite them to trust each other. Many teens leave their retreat commenting that it's a turning point for them, or even the best thing that has happened to them.
