What and why? 

Visitation's High School Youth Retreat, affectionately called, “Visi Retreat,” started in 1990, when parishioners saw the need for a retreat for high school students. With the exception of 1 year, Visi Retreat has continually been a source of solace and spiritual growth for many high school teens and the leaders alike since 1990. Visi Retreat has seen hundreds of teens through their struggles and triumphs over the years. 
 

This retreat is designed to encourage spiritual growth, promote self-esteem, and foster the development of a positive self-attitude. Throughout the weekend, we will focus on many different challenges and opportunities that each of us face in our lives. While the Core Team will present certain themes and issues, your ideas and input will decide what direction the small group discussions will take.

Two days on a retreat will give you a chance to take a step back from school, work and hectic schedules to decide where you want to go with your life. It is an important time to open up and show your true self to others. The retreat will give you some time to think about God’s plan for your life and what values are most important in your life now. While many high schools have retreats available to their students, Visi Retreat is unique in that small groups are led by retreat alum, are co-ed, and have a variety of freshmen - seniors in each group.

Who?
Any and all high school students are invited to attend the retreat, regarless of parish or school affiliation.

Where & When? Feb. 18-20, 2022 at Higher Ground Conference and Retreat Center in West Harrison, IN. We will meet at Visitation in the early evening of Friday 2/18 (be sure teens eat dinner before arriving!) and return Sunday late afternoon to Visitation.
