Dive Into Summer with Youth Programs and Events

Start your family's summer break right with Holy Infant's DeSales Youth Service Retreat, Youth Choir Workshop and Vacation Bible Camp!



Participants will focus on prayer, reflection, service, fellowship and fun! The retreat is partnered with Urban Ministries of Durham (UMD) for service. Service opportunities include preparing and serving a picnic dinner at UMD. Holy Infant parishioners are being called to donate food for the youth to serve dinner on Wednesday, June 21. 

The retreat is open to rising 9th graders to 12th graders and their friends open to the experience. If youth younger than rising 9th grade wish to participate, they must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Our new Director of Music & Liturgy, Francine Britto, is offering 2 free workshops for Holy Infant youth. These fun workshops will concentrate on vocal ability & techniques and the joy of singing in a young people’s choir – all for the glory of our Lord! Young adult instrumentalists who have experience playing in school band or orchestra are also encouraged to attend. Music styles will range from traditional to contemporary. 

After the workshop, informal auditions will take place for those interested in continuing on to be in a newly formed Young Adult or Youth Choir.

The workshops will run from Monday, June 26 through Friday, June 30. The times are as follow:

Youth Choir (rising 4th - 7th grades) : 4:00 - 5:30 PM

Young Adult Choir (rising 8th grade - College Age) : 5:30 - 7 PM
