Retreat for young adults to take place in Camden


A retreat for young adults ages 22-35 will be held Palm Sunday Weekend at the Romero Center in Camden, focusing on how the young faithful can strengthen their relationship with themselves, God and their peers.

Sponsored by the Diocese of Camden and Romero Center Young Adult Ministries, “A Passionate Life: Deepening Relationships with God, Yourself and Others,” will take place from Friday, April 15-Sunday, April 17 at the Romero Center, 2907 Federal St., Camden.

Andres Arango, director of young adult ministry for the Diocese of Camden, called the retreat “a great chance to join other local young adults and take a step back from the busyness of daily life to reflect together on what is really important and how you are called to serve God and others.”

Any young adult between the ages of 22 and 35, married or single, is welcome. The cost of the weekend is $80, but financial aid is available.
