Invitation: Priests & young adults head for Alaska mountains for July retreat

Ask the hard questions, have fun and meet other young Catholics who are looking for a new depth and intensity in their faith. Father Francis Therese and Brother Daniel Kolbe of the Community of St. John aim to provide a rich spiritual environment that encourages young adults to seek the truth about their life in the light of God by leading them to the person of Christ.

This year’s Young Adult Eagle Eye Summer Institute is for those ages 20-35. It takes place July 14-July 24 in the mountains near Anchorage. The theme for this year’s gathering is “Justice: The First & Necessary Step to Mercy.”

Each day of the institute follows the rhythm of the liturgical observances of the Community of St. John, including morning, midday and evening prayer and daily Mass. The participants will begin by hiking the Crow Pass Trail for three-and-a-half days and then return to Holy Spirit Center in Anchorage for four-and-a-half days of theology and philosophy. For more information about Eagle Eye, contact Rachel and David Andrews at or call (907) 349-1258.
