MYO West Coast Retreat 2020

Dear Brother Priests and MYO Advisors,

As we prepare for the regional MYO retreats, I thank you for your continued love and support for our youth. Please note that with the new Diocesan policy, we will not be using hotels for any future retreats. We have secured Divine Word Retreat Center, 11316 Cypress Avenue, Riverside, California for our 2020 Regional retreat Friday, March 13 - Sunday March 15, 2020.

Please note that space is limited to 120, so please be sure to fill out and submit your online application as acceptance is on a first come, first serve basis. The retreat will begin Friday evening with registration at 4:00 p.m. Conclusion of the retreat will be Sunday following Divine Liturgy.

  • The cost for the retreat is $170 per person (single occupancy $200, adults only) which includes accommodations, meals, snacks, and any planned activities.
  • Each participant must provide their own bed linens/sleeping bag, pillow, towels, and personal toiletries.
  • Applications will only be accepted ONLINE at www.maroniteyouth.org with our registration deadline being February 7.
  • After the deadline, we will provide each parish a list of registrants for approval and full payment due by February 14.
  • After the deadline, the fee becomes $200, however, we will need to determine availability prior to accepting any late application. Once the deadline has been met or all vacancies are filled, we will provide each parish a list of registrants for review and approval. At that time, your payment is to be mailed to MYO Office, PO Box 2902, Youngstown, Ohio 44511.

We hope to have a great turnout in 2020 for this spiritually rewarding weekend. Thank you again for all of your time, energy, and efforts in making our youth groups successful.

May the coming weeks ahead be filled with many blessings and graces for you. We hope to see you in March! Please email maroniteyouthoffice@gmail.com with any questions.

God Bless,

Fr. Gary George, C.Ss.R.
Youth Director
