Young adults invited to attend weekend retreat in Menasha

It's often said that men get lost because they won't stop and ask for directions.
Single young men - and young women too - will have a chance to pause and determine what direction
God is leading them at a no-pressure, no-commitment weekend retreat this month.
The Life Directions Retreat weekend April 28-30 at Mount Tabor Retreat Center in Menasha is open to
Catholics 18 to 45.
At the retreat, participants will be invited to consider if their future might include service to God and the
church in priesthood or religious life. Serra Clubs of Appleton, Green Bay and Manitowoc are
sponsoring the weekend in conjunction with vocations directors from the Green Bay area.
The weekend will begin with registration, introductions and snacks at 5:30 p.m. April 28, and will end
at 1 p.m. Sunday, April 30.
The weekend will provide a forum for participants to learn about the opportunities to serve the people
of God as priests, brothers and sisters. Participants will meet men and women who recently entered
religious life and to spend time with others who also are discerning God's call.
There will be presentations, group discussions, one-on-one conversations, prayer time, Sunday Liturgy
and social activities. A staff of diocesan and order priests, Sisters and Brothers will lead the various
Cost of the retreat is $25. Participants are asked to provide their own towels and wash cloths.
