ICRSS Young Adult Weekend

Back in the summer we had mentioned a young adults retreat which was being hosted by the ICRSS in mid August. I only became aware of the fact that they have published some photos and a report from that youth retreat in late August on their website.

Here is what they have to say about the youth retreat:

For the second summer, Sursum Corda, a young adult initiative sponsored by the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, ran on the scenic grounds of St. Francis de Sales Seminary and St. Stanislaus Oratory in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Overlooking Lake Michigan, the long weekend featured daily Mass, Eucharistic adoration and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament, spiritual talks by the Canons, a boat tour of Milwaukee, a beach volleyball tournament, square dancing and a talent show. Canons Huberfeld, Hellmann, and Jayr, along with Abbé George, were on hand to organize the event and provide spiritual direction. Sursum Corda enjoyed the return of participants from across the country and welcomed new friends as well.

Since the inaugural event in July, 2011, Sursum Corda participants have regularly met up with one another for events around the country. Events include the Auriesville Pilgrimage for Restoration, the National March for Life, a winter Milwaukee retreat, and a trip to explore New York City. In the culmination of a years' worth of events, Canons Hellmann and Huberfeld explained in their spiritual conferences the importance of virtuous friendships and the necessity of striving for heroic virtue.

(I'm guessing this is not a Liturgical Dance Practicum, so worry not)
