The Best...

Over the weekend I was once again privileged to accompany our teens to Mount 2000, at Mount St. Mary's university in Emmitsburg.

This retreat weekend is an incredible encounter with Christ and His Church.
The kids are given so much to help them on their journey.
It's hard to be a teen in today's world, and it's even harder to be a faithful Catholic teen. There are so many influences in our culture that are trying to lead our kids into a worldly mindset rather than a radical Christian one.

Mount 2000 gives them a chance to be with about 1600 other kids that love Jesus and follow Him as their Lord.
They are able to attend Mass each day, pray the Rosary, learn  prayer methods like Lectio Divina, go to Confession, and spend an amazing evening with Our Lord in a truly soul-lifting Eucharistic procession and Adoration.
The weekend was wrapped up with Mass with the Archbishop of Baltimore, William Lori.
These kids are so in love with their Lord!!

What a great group of kids from our Youth Group!

He loves us...and we love Him

This is only part of the crowd!
What an encouraging experience this was for me. It gives me great hope.
