Retreat themes center around discipleship and responding to Jesus' invitation to follow Him. The activities will engage participants and build community, the talks will evangelize them, the small group discussions will empower them with practical strategies for developing and deepening their relationship with Jesus through prayer, Scripture, and faith sharing, and the prayer experiences will inspire them to "take it with them" and continue growing in faith and friendship with Jesus at home and with their friends.
Jenny captivates and compels large and small audiences of teens, adults, or an intergenerational crowd with humor, stories, and thought-provoking truths of the Gospel. Presentations can be tailored to your goals.
Chastity sessions show participants how to see in themselves what God sees in them. We are more than flesh and blood, we are created in love to love others with a love that reflects God's love. The personal stories interwoven with Scripture and teachings from Pope John Paul II inspire teens to set a higher standard for themselves. They learn the reality of the Church’s plan for our relationships in our family, with our friends, and in our personal relationships.
Whether parents are present or not, they need to have the language to continue these important discussions at home. Jenny provides a parent page with additional resources and questions that empowers parent and teen conversations.
