New Beginnings Youth Event for Grades 6 – 8

Next event will be in the spring of 2017!  More information to come!!

Our New Beginnings weekend is a community building event, not only for our junior high youth in grades 6 – 8, but this event is organized and lead by our high school youth.  We also invite adult representatives to join in on the activities and discussions.

During the weekend, participants meet peers from across the diocese, enjoy skits, listen to talks, and participate in small group activities and discussions. These activities focus on self, friends, parents, siblings, school, God’s love and prayer.


The retreat begins Friday evening at St. Stephen’s with closing Eucharist on Sunday morning.  Registration will be from 6:30 to 7:00 pm on Friday (please eat before arrival). Friends and family are encouraged to attend the closing service on Sunday at 10:00, and the retreat will come to an end at 12:30 PM. The $60 fee includes all meals and activities for participants, and lodging for our adult representatives.  Please note, scholarships are available for those in need of financial assistance, please contact Karen Gleeson at

Adult Representatives

Adult representatives are invited to attend this weekend event, and encouraged to participate in all of the activities and discussions. Each youth participant in grades 6 – 8 need to have an adult representative from their parish or community.  This will provide each participant the connection with an adult in their parish after the weekend ends. Each adult may represent up to 5 youth. If it is not possible to find an adult representative, please contact Karen Gleeson at  Representatives do not need to be a youth leader or a parent, but must be 21 years or older and have completed “Safeguarding God’s Children” before attending. When registering for New Beginnings, you will be given information on how to complete this online program.


Adult representatives will be staying at the church with the kids.  There will be cots provided, but please bring your own blankets and/or sleeping bag and pillows.   Youth participants will be staying in the common area with supervision from our Camp Tuttle Counselors (so our adult representatives will get a good night sleep).
