Valley Awakening Retreat for Youth Adults Set for July 1-3Valley Awakening, a diocesan young adult retreat, will be held on July 1-3 at Holy Spirit Parish in McAllen.
Awakening is a Catholic retreat held at many colleges and universities across the country, as well as in a number of dioceses. It is a weekend retreat where young adults grow closer to God, make new friends, and experience spiritual renewal.
The retreat, though focused on Catholic teachings, is open to people of different denominations who wish to experience the Christian message of hope and love. Awakening invites young adults to experience God’s unconditional love through a variety of talks, prayers, songs, fellowship, and group discussion.
The Campus and Young Adult Office of the Diocese of Brownsville offers a retreat for young adults who aren't in college (whether you never attended or already graduated).
