This July, Charis Ministries' staff and representatives from the 27 members of our partner program will gather in Chicago to pray, to dialogue, to learn, and to support each other in this dynamic reatreat ministry to those in their 20s and 30s.
July 9-11, 2012
Cenacle Retreat House in Chicago. An oasis in the middle of a bustling city.
Located two blocks from Lake Michigan, and close to the many attractions of Chicago.
Thoughts from the 2009 Conference:
“The Charis partner conference offered me an opportunity to meet partners from across the country and hear about all the great things that were happening. The synergy in the room was unbelievable! I left the conference with great tips and ideas regarding ministries to our young adults.” ~Fr. Michael Alello, Diocese of Baton Rouge
“I believe the Partner Conference gave me a better idea of how my work played a part in the greater mission of Charis. The Partner Conference offered time to dream, time to pray, time to laugh, and even time to find hope through the frustrations that sometimes arise in our ministry.” ~Catherine Mifsud, Jesuit High School in New Orleans
“The value of community is immeasurable. The Partner Conference gave us an opportunity to meet others, learn from each other and enjoy each other- and leave inspired and excited about retreats for young adults.” ~Kathy Powell, Charis Coordinator at Ignatius House Jesuit Retreat Center, Atlanta, GA
