Happening #19 – November 13-16 at Kirby House

Happening is a spiritual retreat presented by teenagers for teenagers, with the help of thoughtful adults. The weekend provides a sacred, safe space where youth may deepen their relationship with Jesus, or meet him for the first time. A wonderful prelude or follow-up to confirmation, Happening is the chance for youth to build a foundation for their own unique lives of faith. All of this happens through lively worship, daily prayer, shared insights, music and the arts, indoor and outdoor games, and a few great surprises. Happening encourages youth to go out into the world to live and proclaim what they have learned and to participate fully in the life of their home parishes.

Only youth grades 9-12 and adults over the age of 24 who have never attended Happening before are invited to attend. Friends outside the Episcopal Church are absolutely welcome to attend as well, so feel free to bring a friend!

Cost is $100 per participant. (Members of Trinity, Easton, please note: contact the parish office before you register since Trinity will pay 50% to members who register on-time!) Register online at www.diobeth.org, “Events”, “Happening #19”.
