SEARCH is a Christian community formed through retreat experiences that help youth on their journey to discover God, themselves, and Christian community. "Searchers" are individuals who have attended a weekend retreat and are now members of the "Search Community". Search family members who have demonstrated their gift of faith are welcome back to serve on Back Up or Kitchen Crew behind the scenes or on team as they walk with "New Searchers" providing support through encouragement, leadership in discussions, and the ministry of presence.
Search is a time to experience a loving, supportive community of young people who want to learn, and experience a closer relationship with God and others. Besides sharing questions and new ideas, youth have the opportunity to share Christ, prayer, friendship, fun and song in a warm, accepting atmosphere. Christ reaches out throughout the weekend in many ways, but our celebration of the Eucharist and Reconciliation brings a greater understanding of what liturgy means. Carefully prepared talks given by the team sharing their personal experiences will touch your heart and kindle your faith journey. After opening themselves up and responding to people on the weekend, youth face a challenge of listening and responding to God's call.
The Search weekend is open to all youth 15 years and up. All denominations are welcome and warmly received. The SEARCH program is based on the teachings of the Catholic Church but is not designed as a means of conversion to Catholicism. Rather, it is an invitation to join a Christ-centered community of young adults and to experience Christ alive and well in a gathering of young people!
