Many parishes are bringing students to the Ablaze Retreat.

Each youth minister will collect forms, payment, and register their parish as a group for the retreat.

If your parish is not coordinating a group for the Ablaze Retreat and you would like your son/daughter to attend, you must accompany them as their chaperone to the retreat. Complete all required forms and follow the instructions "How to Register" that can be found on the Ablaze Retreat website. Links to the forms are also provided above.
