Earlier this year, our youth group went on a three-day retreat to a manor (Castledaly) in Athlone. We had a fun weekend of games, activities and worship. I found that it was a huge help for me to take the time to focus on God instead of school and life outside of church.
We had meetings each day where we discussed the book of Mark and afterwards split into our discussion groups and prayed together. I enjoyed reflecting on the chapters we looked at and finding a better understanding of them. We also had great food and played plenty of games such as football golf, a table quiz and photo scavenger hunt. The weekend was very relaxed and enjoyable and it was a great way to get to know those in the youth group that I didn’t know as well. Overall we all had a lovely weekend and I look forward to the next one!
