New Beginnings is a youth retreat led by high school youth for middle school youth. During the retreat participants have a chance to hear talks from their peers about issues in their lives, and discuss them together. They also pray, play, and sing together, and enjoy time at Honey Creek!
October 14-16, 2022
The retreat begins at 7:00 p.m. (after supper) on Friday, and finishes with a 12:30 p.m. Closing Eucharist on Sunday, to which all parents and friends are invited!
Current cost is $135 for the weekend. However, cost should never be an obstacle to attendance! The Diocese seeks to partner with local congregations and families to divide the cost as necessary in order to enable young people to attend.
While we still encourage masking while indoors, the Diocese is not currently requiring it of all participants and staff. Covid-19 Vaccinations are still required at this time. All such requirements are subject to change depending on public health conditions.
