Catholic Youth Apostolate to Host "The Romantic Revolution" Retreat

The Catholic Youth Apstolate's REAP Team and Office of Catholic Scouting will host the "Romantic Revolution" at the Cardinal Rigali Center on Monday, September 29 from 7 pm to 9 pm.  This retreat is open to young women in grades 7 - 9 interested in learning more about relationships, romance and pure love in today's world. Teen and young adult members of The REAP Team will give testimony to the power and beauty of chastity and how only through living out this virtue can true romance be revived in our world.

At least one adult for each group is expected to attend (no more than 10 girls per adult), and moms are more than welcome! Come as a big group or just a mother/daughter team.

Following are a few comments from young women who attended last year's event:

  • I loved this retreat! It was fun and full of non-stop activities.
  • I thought it was great. I really like the talks. I will always remember to believe in myself.
  • I thought about how much I need God in all my relationships.
  • I learned God has more meaning to me than a guy can treat me.
