Teens discover how they are Made for Greatness

Made for Greatness—the three words that best sum up our TYM fall retreat. Each day during the annual Fall Retreat was used to emphasize and teach the meaning of each word, and how it relates to our call to holiness & our faith.

Friday night was all about being Made. The teens learned that we were made by God and the importance of having Jesus as our foundation in life.  Saturday was about the word For and they learned from both personal testimonies, as well as from the lives of young Saints, that only a life lived for God brings true happiness and joy.  Lastly, on Sunday, we talked about Greatness and how Jesus truly is the greatest of all time (aka GOAT).

Of course, the weekend was not just structured around teaching! The teens had a lot of fun playing games, doing skits, a hiking adventure, and of course making s’mores.  At the end of retreat, the teens all took a cross to wear as a reminder that true greatness comes from a life of love and sacrifice.  The teens had an opportunity to pray for one another for the courage to live out God’s call for their lives. What a beautiful opportunity to build community and encounter Jesus together!
