Upcoming Youth Retreats | National Catholic Youth Conference

November 16-19, 2023

This is a 4 day experience for High School Youth (freshmen through seniors). NCYC is a premier national Catholic youth event that gathers High School aged Catholic teenagers for a life-changing encounter with Christ. Teens will pray, build community, learn more about their faith, and are empowered to live out their faith.

The parish will pay for half of the cost for members of St. Mary’s (this does not include the cost of the meals). As a participant you’re  responsible for the balance of $325, as well as all meals.

If interested or for more information please contact Johnny Sherfick at johnny.sherfick@stmarywoods.com or call the Parish Office, 270-233-4196.

There are 8 youth spots available. Registration deadline is Friday, September 8th, 2023. To register, scan the QR code.
