Following the model of World Youth Day, the event includes daily Mass, the rosary, Eucharistic adoration and dynamic catechesis by the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal and diocesan priests. There will also be live music, lay testimonials as well as great food, snacks and social time. Some new guest speakers are coming this year! Many of our diocesan priests come to concelebrate and hear confessions.

On Saturday participants can ask questions to a select panel of clergy and laity. The panelists come well prepared to explain Church teaching on matters large and small — especially on tough issues of faith and morals — with clarity, charity and wit.

SUMMIT21 Core Team is forming. Join us!

SUMMIT21 Core Team works like a short-term/high-speed youth group.

We meet just three times before the retreat weekend, doing the kinds of things all youth groups do, for fun and service hours.

FAQ about the Core Team:

To meet youth from all around the diocese, learn more about how to live our Catholic faith, and invite others to experience SUMMIT21.

Meetings take place at St. Pius X Parish, Edgewood, Milligan Hall.

Yes, many schools approve service hours for both. This is a great way to complete lots of service hours early in the school year.
