About the Stepping Stones Retreat

The purpose of the Stepping Stones: Young Adult Retreats is to give young adults some tools and a means of discernment which is not specifically about discerning a call to ordination.

Each day retreat focuses on an aspect of the spiritual life which everyone will struggle with and ultimately discern in his/her life.

We hope to give individuals tools to help them in the process of discernment and invite them to consider how God is active in every aspect of life.

The five retreats will be about Self-Reflection, Prayer, the Spirituality of Relationships, the Spirituality of Work, and Lay Ministries. At each retreat, there will be three talks on topics centered around each of the five aspects of the spiritual life.
