Through inspiring talks, engaging workshops, and uplifting worship, the youth experienced a renewed sense of purpose and enthusiasm for their Catholic journey.

Building on the success of the Catholic Youth Rally, the Diocese of Prince Albert has an upcoming Spring Youth Retreat in June. This retreat serves as a transformative experience, offering young individuals a space for prayer, reflection, and personal growth. Guided by the Youth and Young Adult Minister, the retreat encourages participants to deepen their relationship with God and develop a stronger sense of identity as Catholic young adults.
