Catholic Young Adult Vacation

DATES: Friday, June 10 – Sunday, June 12

COST: $185.50

Would you like to meet other Catholic young adults in the Twin Cities, grow in your relationship with God, make some new friends and deepen your current friendships?

During the pandemic, we could find ourselves isolated and lonely. Now that we are coming out of the pandemic, let’s get together! More than that, let’s go on vacation together! 

Come join us in scenic Winona at the lovely Alverna Center managed by St. Mary’s University. Other than the security guard living on campus (Clint rocks!), we have the chapel and facility to ourselves. We will have Mass together each day, have Praise and Worship and Adoration, have free time to explore the city or just relax with friends, have delicious catered buffet meals, and even have a dance! It will be a great opportunity to connect with friends, make new ones, and even to meet some religious sisters. What Catholic vacation is complete without talking with a nun?

We grow in relationship with God and with each other when we spend time together, when we have carefree timelessness. And that is what a vacation is — a chance to lay down our burdens and invest in others — God and friends. 

Alverna is giving us a huge discount and for two nights and three days, with three catered buffet meals, it is only $185.50 per person. There are 24 rooms with 46 beds so you get to room with a friend! Rooms include private restrooms and showers. When registering, indicate the name of your preferred roommate if interested. 

Do you want to meet other Catholic Young Adults, grow in your faith, and meet some great people while having a ton of fun? Join us!
Feel free to reach out to Maggie Heuer with any questions. She would be happy to speak with you! Maggie’s email is maggieheuer@outlook.com

Mission

Saint Ambrose’s young adult group, In Regno Christi (IRC), is hosting the vacation. IRC has three missions: to make disciples, to build Christian community, and to raise up young adult leaders. Saint Ambrose is a vibrant Catholic community supporting and nurturing each person on their journey with Christ. Through joyful worship, service to each other and our neighbors, and on-going opportunities to learn and live in Christ, we support each member as they seek to deepen their relationship with Jesus.
