Youth Group Retreat
On January 14th & 15th, 40 members of the Breath of Life Youth Group from St. Peter Chaldean Chatholic Cathedral in El Cajon, CA, attended an overnight retreat at the San Luis Rey Mission in Oceanside, California.
The youth dedicated themselves to finding "Resolution with God," and opening their hearts to the Lord. Through silent prayer, confession, and various religious activities, the youth allowed their relationship with God to grow as they ventured on a spiritual journey. They were taken away from their daily lives without technological items such as cell phones and watches, to help isolate themselves from the rest of the world, and focus on their relationship with God.
The youth attended a mass celebrated by Father Andrew, as well as participate in the mission's day of silence, where talking was prohibited outside of any building. The retreat was an opportunity for the youth to start off their new year in the right direction, closer to the church as well as with each other.
