An Excellent Experience
2015 Winter Youth Retreat – Midwest Diocese

Over 110 high school and college students came together for spirituality, fellowship, and healing.

It all started on Monday evening December 28, 2015, when a harsh winter storm hit the Chicago area. It seemed that most of the participants would not be able to make it. By the grace of God and the prayers of His most holy Mother, almost everyone arrived – and all arrived safely.
