The Episcopal Diocese of Rochester is hosting its fifth annual Roc the Diocese! Youth Retreat and we want you there! The dates for this year's retreat are Friday, April 21 at 5:00 p.m. - Sunday, April 23 at 1:00 p.m. (Note: this is at the tail end of Spring Break). Roc the Diocese! is for anyone in 7th-12th grade and is held at LeTourneau Christian Camp on Canandaigua Lake. The cost is $100 and includes meals, lodging, and all of the activities.
This year's theme for Roc the Diocese! is Extraordinary. We will be exploring all of the ways we can be extraordinary and looking at some extraordinary people in our church's tradition. We will also be exploring different ways to pray. The weekend will be filled with games, music, worship, and plenty of time to hang out with friends both new and old. Most of the weekend's activities will be led by the high school and college students who have been planning this retreat since the fall.
Note: Because of accounting difficulties that have developed in the past, for both theDiocese and for parents, the Diocese of Rochester will not be accepting partial payments for the 2017 Roc the Diocese! Youth Retreat. This means that the Diocesewill not provide scholarships directly to individual youth. Instead, we encourage parishes to coordinate scholarships for their youth who need it; we recognize that thefull cost may be burdensome for some of our youth, and the Diocesan Youth Grant program can help parishes with such costs.
There are two ways to pay this year:
- The $100 cost of attendance can be paid by check to the Diocese by theparent/guardian of participating youth
- The $100 cost of attendance can be paid by check by the parish of theparticipating youth. The parish can then determine the cost/scholarship for the youth and work that out with each family.
Checks should be made out to:
