Attention all High School Students!!


Join us at IGNITE Youth Ministry.

Come for faith, fellowship, lively discussions and food! All high school teens and friends are welcome!


What is Kairos? “καιρός” is the Greek work referring to the “Lord’s time”. It describes the time in our lives when we reflect on where we are and where we are going.  The Diocese of Joliet is offering this amazing experience to high school teens who are not attending a Catholic school.

Why go on Kairos?  Thousands of teens go on Kairos retreats each year. They discover who they really are and how they want to live. Some go because their friends are going or because they know someone who already went. They go for their own reasons, but all come back changed.

Where?  Our Lady of Angels Retreat Center in Lemont.               

When?  Friday, March 29 - Sunday, March 31, 2019

Cost:  $100 per participant. This covers your lodging, meals and all other related expenses.

How do I register?  Your first step is to fill out an application and individual permission form, which you can find online on the diocesan youth ministry webpage, or from the St. Mary YM Office.  Then submit payment with paperwork to the St. Mary Youth Ministry Office.  

Please make checks payable to the Diocese of Joliet.
