Quo Vadis Young Men’s Retreat

Quo Vadis? is a question that tradition holds St. Peter asked the risen Jesus as he fled Rome to escape persecution. He asked Jesus, “Domine, quo vadis?” “Lord, where are you going?” and Jesus responded, “I’m going to Rome to be crucified in your place.” This encounter led Peter to draw courage and give his life for the Lord and His church.

The first ever Quo Vadis? Retreat is happening June 22-24 in Chatawa. This retreat is for young men ages 15-25. Fr. Nick Adam will lead the retreat and focus on this question: where are you going? while also having a lot of time for fun and fraternity.

The deadline to register is June 8.
