Look inside


Retreats offer young people an opportunity to learn more about themselves, build relationships with others, and grow in their relationship with God. Retreats are occasions for conversion and a chance to get away from the busyness of life and encounter God.

Youth Retreats for Any Schedule includes five retreats on a variety of topics that speak to the needs and daily experiences of young people. Ministry leaders can use each retreat as written or mine the book for resources to use in religious education classes, youth group meetings, mission trips, and so on. The retreats and activities can also be used as a springboard for creating new retreats.

Editorial Reviews

Catholic Library World, September, 2007

Youth Retreats for Any Schedule gives the rationale for youth retreats and encouragement for youth leaders wishing to organize a retreat, either half-day, day-long, overnight or weekend. The retreat frameworks and themes, and the detailed activities, make this a valuable tool for any youth leader or teacher wishing to organize a teen retreat.

YouthWorker Journal, July/Aug, 2007

If you've never planned a retreat before or you need to pull one out of a hat, Maryann Hakowski has written the book for you. She gives minute-by-minute outlines of five retreats adaptable to half-day, full-day, overnight, or weekend scheduling. . . .

The most unique retreat addresses social justice, featuring a poverty quiz, humility Charades, and a card game called "Peace." Catholic social teaching is discussed in a soundly scriptural way.
