This weekend retreat for girls was planned by a team of youth ministers and volunteers from around the diocese. The object was to bring speakers and activities that would help the teens grow in their faith and to challenge them to find ways to have a deeper relationship with Christ. Let Hope be An Anchor for your Soul was the theme of the retreat.
