Mission Trips & Retreats


Registration for our High School Winter Retreat is open!  


St. Mary Youth Ministry will be holding a winter retreat for all high schoolers, at Montezuma Retreat Center from Jan 17-19. This retreat, Called to Mission, focuses on how we are called to be leaders in our community and Church, and takes a deep look at the central role of prayer and the Spirit in our lives as disciples. 

Location: Montezuma Retreat Center, associated with the Maria Stein Spiritual Center. Located at 6731 State Route 219, Montezuma, Ohio 45866. 

Date and Time: 4:00 pm on Jan 17, to 2:00 pm on Jan 19. 

Registration and Cost: To register, please complete this form and return to the parish office by Monday, Jan 13th, at the latest. In addition, please fill out a check for $60, made out to St. Mary of the Assumption. This covers the cost of two nights at the retreat center, as well as our meals for the weekend.

Travel Arrangements: We intend to carpool from St. Mary to the Montezuma Center. The drive is about one hour and forty minutes.

If your teen cannot attend all of the retreat but would like to participate anyway, please coordinate with the youth minister, at [email protected] 



Past Trips:

In November 2019, we attended the National Catholic Youth Conference in Indianapolis. NCYC brings together almost twenty thousand young Catholics from across the nation, to worship together and enter more deeply into our shared faith. This was a great opportunity to see how the Holy Spirit is moving in the young people of America! 

In June 2019, we traveled to Louisville to serve at Catholic Heart Workcamp. We had a powerful experience in service to neighbor, building community, and spending time in prayer and Adoration!
