Youth Programs & Retreats

In keeping with the Marianist tradition, MRCC has always devoted itself to a special ministry for youth.

Our team of professional youth ministers provide overnight or single day programs filled with thought provoking and fun activities to help youth deepen their faith, experience Christian community and grow in their commitment to the Gospel.

Engaging prayer experiences, team building, guided journaling, catechetical instruction and arts and crafts are just some of the ingredients of our youth programs.

Student Feedback

We love creating meaningful, engaging programs for students and youth. See what they have to say about their experiences!

FROM A JUNIOR OVERNIGHT RETREAT AT MRCC I wish we had more time to stay here but nonetheless I enjoyed it. I reflected on my anger and hate and tried to heal myself and clear my mind. The rooms were nice and the whole property was great to explore. Thank you for the experience. I give this retreat a 10 because I feel like my classmates and I got to really open up. Also, the campus and the staff are amazing! My least favorite part was how short it was. I wish we had more time together. I give the hospitality a 10 because everyone was amazing and inclusive and overall just so kind. My favorite part of the retreat was the affirmations. I had never done that before and it felt therapeutic. I felt God more on this retreat than I have anywhere else for a long time. On a scale of 1 to 100 I give the food 100,000. It was some of the best food I have ever eaten especially the pulled pork. Thank you guys and we appreciate you. Engaging, relevant, relaxing. You guys could go national. My favorite part of the retreat was the dad jokes. They were just great! Chef Mike was better than my mom and she's a good cook. On the scale of 1 to 10 I would give it a 9 just because I wish it was longer. I've never been on a retreat I liked or got something out of it and I really enjoyed this. My favorite part was when people were opening up during the group discussion. I thought it was beautiful. I give the hospitality a 10; you guys are so sweet. I've never had such good retreat food I'd eat this every day forever. It was the most fun I've had in a long time. Good people everywhere. My favorite part of the retreat was the chastity talk because I've messed up in that area. It really helped to open my eyes to Jesus, and friends.
