Due to renovations at Brescia University’s campus center, the Catholic Diocese of Owensboro’s Youth 2000 event will be relocated to the Owensboro Convention Center this year.
The retreat, which normally draws over 500 young people, takes place March 11-13 and is open to ages 13-10.
According to a release by the Diocese, Youth 2000 helps young people strengthen their love for the Holy Eucharist and to bear witness to the role Jesus has in their lives. Young people are given the opportunity during the retreat to grow in their understanding of the Catholic Faith and to deepen their commitment to the service of the Church and others.
During the retreat, young people will spend time in prayer, adoration, singing, listening to lively talks and sharing with other youth.
Friday night’s retreat session is from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.; Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The fee for the retreat is $60, which includes lunch and dinner on Saturday. Financial assistance is available to those in need. All are welcome!
This event is sponsored by the Diocesan Marian Shrine Committee, Diocese of Owensboro’s Offices of Youth Ministry, Hispanic Youth & Young Adult, and Faith Formation.
