DOSA Annual Young Ladies Retreat – “Priceless”

All young ladies in grades 9-12 are invited to attend our Annual Ladies Young Retreat being held April 28-30 at Camp Crystal Lake in Starke, Florida. Our theme this year is “I preferred her to scepter and throne, and deemed riches nothing in comparison with her, nor did I liken any priceless gem to her; Because all gold, in view of her, is a bit of sand, and before her, silver is to be accounted mire” (Wisdom 7:8-9). We have planned tons of activities and awesome liturgy. It is going to be a great retreat. Please contact your parish youth minister or the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry for more information or to register.
