18th – 20th November 2022

A weekend Retreat for young adults aged 18-35 who wish to grow in self-knowledge before God the Father.

Experiencing his love in the reality of our being, we open ourselves to developing healthy psycho-sexual relationships, learning to receive and give love in a chaste manner and according to our particular state in life.

Sexuality affects all aspects of the human person in the unity of his body and soul. It especially concerns our affectivity, the capacity to love and to procreate, and in a more general way the aptitude for forming bonds of communion with others.” CCC 2332

Join others in asking the questions needed to live a consciously chaste / celibate life. Option of personal accompaniment is also available.

Sr Camilla COLW is a graduate of the Institute for Sexuality Studies (at the Catholic Theological Union/Chicago University), and the Regina Apostolorum University in Rome.
