School Classes 5 – 8

C.Y.F.M. offers two different Elementary School Class day retreats to strengthen the faith of the participants.  These retreats are “Friends With Jesus” and “Where is Jesus Today.”  Through both, students are encouraged to experience a more personal faith and to grow in a relationship with Jesus.  

“Friends With Jesus” - This retreat explores our common experience of  friendship and how it relates to our friendship with Jesus.  First students explore values they see as important in their own friendships.  Next, while in small groups, students will explore what Jesus tells us about friendship.  The day includes large group presentations, small group discussions, witnesses by Cap Corps Volunteers, and a concluding prayer service.  

“Where is Jesus Today” – This retreat helps the students realize that Jesus is present in their lives today.  Students will explore what they can do to live out their faith and what they should stop doing in order to grow stronger in their faith.  Included in the retreat is a presentation on the Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Reconciliation and how these relates to finding Jesus today.  Also included are a video presentation, large group presentations, small group discussions, witnesses by our Cap Corps Volunteers, and a concluding prayer service.
