Signed Anointed Witness (SAW)

YM Opp Young People

SAW is a post Confirmation leadership retreat open to confirmed teens (including those who were scheduled to be confirmed this Spring). The SAW retreat will have a different look this year compared to all the previous years. Due to COVID-19 and the restrictions in place keeping us from gathering in person, we have opted to have a virtual mini-version of the retreat rather than cancel altogether.

One of the MAIN things that will BE THE SAME is that we want you to invite recently confirmed (or scheduled to be confirmed) teens from your parish who have leadership potential.

The cost for SAW 2020 will be FREE. We are offering the retreat at no cost this year due to the financial hardships happening in many parishes and families during this time of COVID-19.

We ask that each parish limit their retreatants to no more than 8 per parish to ensure we have enough spots available for all who want to attend. Any young person who attends SAW 2020 is eligible to apply to attend SAW 2021. This is a onetime change in the rules that a young person can only attend SAW once.

SAW Retreat 2020 will be held virtually on Tuesday 7/21, Wednesday 7/22 and Thursday 7/23 from 12:30-3:30p.m. each day with an optional Recreation hour Tuesday and Wednesday 7:00-8:00 pm.

You can now register here! Deadline to Register is July 9th.
