These formation events are meant to strengthen the bonds between generations and provide the kind of spiritual assistance girls need to negotiate the challenge of high school.
Each retreat is a self-contained event, so that the sequence can be entered with any of the four retreats. Each retreat has as its patrons an angel and saint. The theme of each revolves around a deep developmental aspect of moral and spiritual formation, pertinent to girls in this transition age.
The goal is to attend all four retreats. Attendance at all four retreats (ideally over a 2 year period) constitutes completion of the program. Upon graduation the girls receive a bracelet that includes symbols reminding them of how a devotion to the angels will equip them with the spiritual resources to navigate the moral dilemmas in the years ahead.

The Women’s Apostolate to Youth cordially invites you to a Mother- Daughter Retreat (for girls in grades 7-9) devoted to reflecting on the vital role played by your guardian angel in your spiritual growth and character development. No one knows better than your very own holy angel what
God’s plan for your life is; so by coming closer to your angel, the path leading to that goal will become clearer and easier to traverse.
Join us for this wonderful opportunity to forge a stronger bond between the two of you by sharing and deepening your devotion to your guardian angels. The retreat includes talks, and special activities (fun!), as well as opportunities for confession, adoration and Mass.
