In the Spring, we have a series of Spring Retreats planned.
From Advent through Pentecost, we as a liturgical church spend time thinking about the ever existing One, His advent, ministry, death, resurrection, ascension, and gift of the Holy Spirit. It by nature is a time with long periods of thoughtfulness.
Often teens find stepping away for a few moments of introspection difficult. To help create a space for God to speak with teens, St. Michael’s Student Ministry is providing short spaces of spiritual retreat for each Community Group.
