The “Search” retreat is a weekend during which young men and women come together for a sharing of faith, fun and fellowship. These weekend retreats take place all over the world in different cities in countries. There are several places in Alberta in which search retreats have been organizes, and St.Augustine School has taken groups of students to attend these retreats.
Search is a retreat which encourages young people to “search for a Christian maturity” within the Catholic Faith. During the weekend several leaders teach lessons regarding the beliefs of the Catholic Church and living a Christian life. There is time spent singing and dancing, time for games and activities, time for reflection and time for prayer.
The students are able to take time out of their busy lives to reflect on what their identity is in Christ, and meet other people around the province who are also doing the same thing. It is truly beautiful to see the growth than can occur over one weekend, and a distinct privilege to have the opportunity to take our own students to something so powerful.
YC Alberta has become Canada’s largest annual youth conference. It has grown from just 500 registrants in 1994 to over 16,000 participants annually. YC Alberta is a weekend where students from junior high to university age come together to be spiritually challenged and changed for the purposes of God. In the last decade, thousands of students have accepted Christ as their personal Savior and thousands more have made decisions to be bold in their faith and go deep with God.
