Diocese of Joliet Kairos Retreats

The Diocese is offering Kairos Retreats for high school juniors & seniors in schools that do not offer the retreat.

Steubenville Conference

The summer weekend retreat is truly a powerful experience. Teens encounter Christ through adoration, praise and worship, reconciliation and Mass. The event features dynamic national speakers, engaging workshops, small group time and, of course, fun and games.

Mission Trip

We take an annual, week long, mission trip in the summer to go out and serve those in need while also growing in faith and fellowship with those we serve and serve with.

Social Opportunities

Youth Ministry sponsors various social gatherings including trips to Six Flags, skiing, movie nights, Christian concerts, game nights, open gym, BBQs, and more. These are great ways to meet new people and make new friends in a laid back atmosphere.

8th Grade

Second semester 8th graders are able to start attending RPM. As a welcome to the ministry, there is an 8th grade lock-in with games, food, music and information on how to get involved.
