Summer Youth Retreat in Belgrade July 15-20

The Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa Catholic churches are excited to announce the coming of Totus Tuus, a new Summer Youth Retreat available locally during the week of July 15-20.

Totus Tuus, which means "totally yours", is a summer Catholic youth program focused on sharing the Gospel and promoting your faith. This week-long program is a great opportunity for youth to immerse themselves in the joy and treasure of being Catholic.

The program for youth of Sts. Peter and Paul, St. Donatus and St. Francis de Sales Catholic churches and their friends, will be led by four young people (two men and two women) chosen for their high energy, enthusiasm, love for the faith, commitment to spiritual growth, ability to work with a team and a desire to work with youth.
