Sursum Corda: calling all Young Adults!
August 10-13, 2012
Many people have asked the Canons of the Institute when they would be offering a program of solid spiritual, doctrinal and moral formation geared specifically to young adults. When young people leave home for the first time and begin to study or work with those who do not know Christ, their faith is quickly put to the test. To them especially apply the words of Scripture: Always be prepared to make a defense to anyone who calls you to account for the hope that is in you (1 Pt 3:15).
The day has arrived! The Institute of Christ the King now presents Sursum Corda, a nationwide initiative to foster the spiritual lives of the young adults in our apostolates. For the second year in a row, Sursum Corda is offering a social and spiritual weekend for young people ages 18 and up, August 10 through 13, 2012. The event will be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at the Retreat Center located on the grounds of St. Francis de Sales Seminary (3257 South Lake Drive, St. Francis, WI 53235). Canon Aaron Huberfeld, Rector of St. Mary’s Oratory in Wausau, will be the chaplain for the camp, and several other canons are sure to be there as well.
The program includes daily Mass, prayer in common and opportunity for confession, faith formation classes and discussions, and other social activities for the young men and women. The weekend begins with check-in at 3:00 PM on Friday, August 10 at the Retreat Center and will end on Monday, August 13 at 12:00 PM.
Please register online at www.institute-christ-king.org. The cost is $235 per person with a $100 deposit required at registration. The number of participants is limited to 35, so register today!
