Lent Launch Lock-in

to Mar 10

Lent Launch Lock-in

  • Trinity Church, Copley Square, Boston (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Youth groups and young people from across the diocese will gather as Lent begins for an overnight "lock-in" to explore with each other the potentials and the promise of this holy season. 

With the temptation of Christ in the wilderness as our starting point, stage director and teacher Kristen Cairns will help use theater to begin our exploration.  Music, spoken word, and the majestic Trinity Church worship space will all be utilized in the overnight, as well.  The highlight for many is the candlelit Taizé-inspired  worship late at night in the darkened chancel of Trinity’s magnificent sanctuary. 

The retreat concludes Sunday with everyone participating in the 9 AM Lent 1 service at Trinity followed by a group presentation to the Trinity congregation during their Sunday morning Adult Educational Forum.

2019 Preconfirmation Retreat #1

2019 Preconfirmation Retreat #1

Barbara C. Harris Camp

PreConfirmation retreats are a chance for young people of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts to meet other young people discerning their call to Confirmation, or even just the faith journey in general! The retreats do not try to sum up a year’s worth of classes in one overnight, but we do try to give all who come a feeling for how making a commitment to one’s faith can be lived out not only in church, but in every part of our day.

The retreats are led by the members of the Diocesan Youth Council, 10th-12th graders who see part of their leadership and ministry as welcoming all the youth attending retreats, leading small groups, and giving reflections on their own spiritual journeys. They look forward to getting to know all participants!
