The Diocese of Memphis offers a
variety of weekend retreats designed for Middle School and High School
students. We encourage all our 7th-12th graders to consider making these
retreats as part of their faith journey.
For 7th & 8th
graders the VOYAGE Retreat is offered. This retreat is designed to allow young
Catholic Christians (7th & 8th graders) to develop a better understanding
of themselves through their gifts and talents and increase their self-esteem, self-worth,
and self-confidence. VOYAGE also tries to foster in each young person their
gifts and talents and encourage them to set sail and put these gifts and
talents to work for God and His holy people.

QUEST is the weekend retreat designed for 9th &
10 graders. QUEST is designed to meet high school freshmen and sophomores where
they are, and lift them to a greater realization of their own self-worth and a
deeper awareness of “the others” in their lives – both persons and God. It centers around a “three circles of
love” theme—calling the young people to reflection and insight on love of self, love
of neighbor and love of God.

For 11th & 12th graders the diocese offers
SEARCH. The SEARCH for Christian Maturity is a weekend experience in Christian
Living. It is designed to help the young Christian as they seek to develop and
grow in relationship with Jesus Christ and with others. SEARCH provides a
unique opportunity for young people to come to know God as God works through
the words, actions and lives of their peers. In this way, each SEARCHer is able
to gain a greater understanding of the meaning of Christianity in his/her life
and the in the world through the thoughts of others their own age who have
already begun to find insights and meanings.
