Marist Youth Encounter Christ Retreat in Esopus

Students from four American Marist schools, Msgr Pace, Mount St Michael, St Joes Regional, and Marist Bayonne, gathered from 5 to 8 March 2020 at the Marist Brothers’ Center at Esopus, with the intention to pray for each other and know Jesus and Love him.

Adult and young adult Marist team helped made this encounter a success. Through reflexions groups, prayers, music and liturgy the students had the opportunities to sharings, be in a relationship with Jesus and grow together, during 3 days.

For over 50 years the Encounter has been an innovative and creative retreat for young people throughout the Province of the USA. Through the Catholic Marist tradition of “Making Jesus Known and Loved” the Encounter is an opportunity for young people to connect with each other and God.

Each year the Province sponsors 3 multi-school Encounters at the Marist Brothers Center at Esopus where students from all Marist schools and ministries are invited to participate. Several of the Marist schools also offer the Encounter retreat locally.
