What a Friend Retreat | Manning, AB

December 2, 2019

Retreat at Rosary School in Manning, AB.

What a Friend Retreats are put on by our retreat leaders, Matthew Marcoux and Michael Salamida. Through music, games, talks, testimonies, story-telling and fun skits, Matthew and Michael will lead your students on a faith journey like no other. The “What a Friend!” Retreats explores the gift of authentic friendship and how it helps us to become who we were created to be … and the Ultimate Friendship is the one we have with Jesus!

This year’s hilarious skits, inspiring talks and uplifting music will create an impactful day to help students see the possibilities their life holds when they invite Jesus into their life as their friend. This relationship begins with prayer … and prayer is not complicated. It is simply opening up their hearts to Jesus and letting Him in on what’s really important in their life … and then learning to listen to the ways God speaks to us, guides us and helps us to become who He created us to be.

Witnesses of Faith There is nothing so effective to communicate the power of the Gospel to young people as through the witness of engaging, young Christian adults have dedicated time in their life just to share the love of Christ with others. This is so powerful!
