Teens Put Catholic Social Teaching In Action At Youth Retreat

Teens in our diocese gather at a retreat to do service and explore the root causes of problems facing the community. The Catholics in Action retreat program in the Diocese of Davenport helps our youth share God’s love with others. During three-day retreats, teams of high school students from parishes in our Diocese pray, learn, and
reflect on the Church’s social mission. We explore the root causes of social issues, learn what is happening in our own communities, and participate in service projects. For example, participants learned how one local agency assists workers who have been victims of wage theft. The retreats help us get to know teenagers in other parishes as we put our faith into action.
