Charis NYC: Young Adult Retreats

Charis NYC Announces Retreats for Young Adults

Peer-Led Retreat Ministry Launches New #FindYourGrace Campaign
to Highlight Seekers Retreat and ‘What Next?’ Retreat Offerings,
Plus a Charis NYC Original, the Brand-New Still+Silent Retreat

September 30, 2014 -- Charis NYC, a ministry which presents Ignatian spirituality retreats by and for Catholic young adults of New York City, announces its 2015 season of peer-led weekends rooted in Ignatian spirituality.  The ministry presents its classic offerings, the Seekers Retreat (January 2015) and the ‘What Next?’ Retreat (March 2015), and expands to include a third, brand-new retreat, the Still+Silent Retreat, which the Charis NYC team will develop and present in November 2015.

The three 2015 retreats comprise Charis NYC’s most ambitious season to date, highlighting a tremendous need for the ministry’s Ignatian retreats which connect young adults to Catholic community and bring them closer to God.  To that end, Charis NYC launches #FindYourGrace, an integrated campaign inviting young adults to spend a weekend outside of the city with Charis NYC.  Whether entering into a Charis NYC retreat for the first time, or again as retreat alumni, young adults can rely on Charis NYC to help them discover the community, time, support, strength -- and graces -- needed for lives as young Catholic-Christians in NYC.



Let’s keep in touch!
