Catholic Youth Expeditions began in the summer of 2002. We made an expedition retreat to Chamber's Island for three days. We prayed, played, and did the whole camping thing...cooking our own food, making the fire, swatting away flies, hiking to our site, and putting up our tents. During the whole experience the challenge of getting to know one another and surviving was awesome. The culmination of the retreat was adoration, benediction, mass, and confessions on the last night on the island. Since that time, Catholic Youth Expeditions has reached out to thousands young adults and high school students, offering a fun and faith-filled camping experience. In our 15th season we are gaining more experience and discerning where God is leading this ministry. Please pray for us! Our Church needs an avenue of evangelization and catechism wrapped up in one ministry that presents the Gospel message as vibrant and ALIVE! As Jim Rayburn, founder of Young Life, said: "To bore a young person with the Gospel is a sin!"
