Young Adults are invited to join us for a retreat at St. Felix Catholic Center from Friday evening through Sunday morning, September 23-25, 2022. The retreat will focus on the invitation to an abundant life derived from John 10:10, "I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly." It is a time to withdraw from everyday hustle, to spend time with God, and to build a stronger community of faith.

Address: 1280 Hitzfield St. Huntington, IN 46750 Cost?: Flexible, Suggested donation $100 (pay as you are able).
