Young Adult ‘EmergentStrengths’ Retreat

“Be Who God meant you to be and you’ll set the world on Fire”

St. Catherine of Siena

Come enjoy a weekend in the Laurentians to learn more about who you are, how God made you with purpose and what plans He has in store for you.

Join other young adults (ages 18-26) from the diocese in conversation, music and reflection. 

The goal is for you to discover your God-given talents so that you understand how you are one-of-a-kind. You will discover who you truly are, what your unique contribution is to the world, what you need to be at your best – and what God is calling you to do with your life.

All of this starts with a simple online talent assessment tool called, the CliftonStrengths Assessmenttm.  This assessment has been taken by over 22 million people world-wide and the results are your talent DNA. They explain the ways you most naturally think, feel and behave.

There will be a variety of organized activites but also lots of time for fun and fellowship.

Where: Camp Kinkora, Lac de la Borne, QC (located in the Laurentians just north of Montreal)
