Divine Mercy Weekend

Mater Dei High School

 

Adult Retreat – April 18 – Corpus Christ Church

 

Dear Youth Ministers and Parish Catechetical Leaders,

 “I TELL YOU THE TRUTH!

 In St. John Paul II’s, Letter to Families, he warns, “Who can deny that our age is one marked by a great crisis, which appears above all as a profound “crisis of truth”?  Twenty-six years later the consequences of this crisis have been devastating and continue to ravage the souls, minds and bodies of our youth!  

Do your youth know and live the TRUTH?

 

SOURCE + SUMMIT 2020, “I Tell You the Truth”, will boldly challenge the lies of this culture of death in a believable, convincing and engaging way.  Let’s work together to reclaim and strengthen the souls and minds of our youth while inviting them to a real and personal relationship with Jesus.

 

Your youth will hear the truth presented as they have NEVER heard it before! Our speakers are energetic, passionate, spirit-filled and most of all called by God to bring the TRUTH to His people. They have experienced the life changing personal touch from the hand of God and want your youth to experience that also!

 

I know how difficult it is to convince young people (even adults) to give up an entire weekend to grow closer to God but the task is made so much easier when another peer stands before them and gives them believable and relatable reasons to do so  -- they let them know what waits for them at Source + Summit, what they have found… Friends…Fun…Truth…and most importantly a changed life that is lived anchored in love with God!!

Your fliers and posters should be arriving soon, I have attached other documents that will be helpful.  Thank you so much for EVERYTHING that you are doing to help our youth - YOU ARE THE BEST OF THE BEST!

 

PLEASE DO NOT LET THIS OPPORTUNITY PASS THEM BY!

Most Reverend Bishop Joseph Siegel  BISHOP SIEGEL'S LETTER OF INVITATION

 

Fr. Josh Waltz – Now the vocation director for the Diocese of Bismark, as a young man, the last thing Fr. Joshua Waltz ever thought he would be was a Catholic priest. But a series of choices—some bad and some good—ultimately led him to enter the seminary.  Fr. Waltz will share an incredible vocation story that involves heartbreak, robbers, Europe, and several miracles—all showing that there is nothing more exciting than a life lived for Jesus Christ.  Our youth will be able to relate to and be inspired by this remarkable and anointed priest as he “Tells them the TRUTH! About Fr. Josh Waltz

 

Fr. Joe Freedy – A college quarterback heading to the pro’s Fr. Joe did a real “Hail Mary” play.  He fell in love with Jesus.   
“I realized that he’s not into making our lives boring or miserable, but just the opposite. He invites us into this adventure of growing and living life to the fullest on the way to becoming the amazing people we’re created to be.” This is why so many young people are attracted to what he has to say. “They hear a message preached and taught that speaks to their soul in a way they haven’t heard and in a way that compels them to believe the TRUTH!” About Fr. Joe Freedy

 

Giancarlo Bernini - In the spirit of St. John Bosco, Catholic illusionist Giancarlo Bernini has astounded international audiences with an incredible show experience, appearing at NCYC, Penn & Teller: Fool Us and The Jennifer Fulwiler Show.  Using the art of illusion, Giancarlo is able to share a unique perspective on faith and what it means to seek and know the Truth.  His love of his Catholic faith and apologetics have allowed and inspired him to create a program tailored to capture and convert the hearts of Catholic youth.  Attentive to the needs of the Church today, Giancarlo has crafted a show designed to entertain audiences while inspiring them to seek after God through the sacraments of the Church and to wholeheartedly pursue their call to sainthood.

Sr. Anne, CSJ
 “I met Jesus on a young adult retreat with the Community of St. John and in time realized it was only Him who could fill my heart that had such a great desire to love and to be loved. With this discovery came the desire to share the treasure of His love with others, to share that there is Someone who can and will satisfy the desire contained in every human heart for an infinite love.” About Sister Anne, CSJ

Please call Kathy at 812-453-1024 and we will do our best to provide one for you.

 

 

 

Do I need to attend?
