Adult Antioch Weekend


Come to the Antioch Adult Retreat

Why is this weekend called Antioch?

The Acts of the Apostles report, “It was at Antioch that the believers were first called Christians.” During the early Church times the community at Antioch was recognized as a particularly faithful, vibrant, loving, prayerful people of God.

What does that have to do with us?

To what extent are we known as a Christian people at work, home, and in the neighborhood? Do we allow our faith in God to affect the way we are and act? Are we more loving, faithful, caring, honest, and joyful because of our faith? The challenge is that we, members of the Church, accept the love of Christ and live it daily.

What is the weekend like?

It is a dynamic weekend, full of sharing, discussions, music, food, fun, projects, quiet time and more. The weekend is entirely given by an experienced retreat team. It will be the best “mini-vacation” you will ever take! You will be glad you came!

Who can go?

This weekend is open all mature adults age 18 and older; and no longer in high school.
