Our Team

Our current Youth Ministry Team began in 2007. Since that time we have collaborated over 1,000 retreats for tens of thousands of young people. Our Team strives to ensure the highest quality and standard of programs; each retreat is custom designed to meet the unique charism of your school or parish group.

Below you can meet some of our dedicated ministry professionals.
