Happening is a retreat weekend “for youth” “by youth” that allows young people (grades 9-12) to explore their relationships with Jesus, each other and the world. Concentrating closely on the person and teachings of JesusChrist, Happening gives those who attend the desire to understand and serve the church. What’s more, it provides a means to continue the Christian formation process, which is just begun in the three-day program. And it is lots of fun! Happening begins on a Friday at 6 p.m. and goes until 5:30 p.m. Sunday. Participants are expected to be at Happening the entire time. The Dioceses of Michigan and Eastern Michigan share in this ministry for young people.
As you walk in faith, come experience God and community more deeply during this weekend of discovery and reflection. You will engage in real conversations about God and a logical presentation of the elements that define our faith. You will meet new people and hear stories of personal life experiences intended to offer Christ’s message and to let you wrestle with faith questions that you may struggle with.
