Vocations Retreat Lloydminster 2011

Page history last edited by frbo 11 years, 6 months ago


Welcome to the Lloydminster


"Vocations Retreat" webpage!


We hope you find all the information you need...

...just scroll down and/or click on the Navigation buttons to the right.

if you still need more call Kelly at (780) 872-5831.


What is this “Vocations Retreat”?

All people are called to be holy: Not all people are called in the same way.

The purpose of the retreat is to raise awareness and to explore ALL different types of vocations, not only religious life or the priesthood.  We plan to journey and pray together to deepen our understanding of what God has planned for our lives.  If you are a young person earnestly trying to figure out what God is calling you to, we encourage you to invest in your future and come see where God is calling you to serve.


What will I gain from the retreat?

This retreat has been designed to help you know who you are and what God is calling you to be.  

Is it single life? Is it marriage? Does God want me to be consecrated and/or to live my vocation out within my family?  Can I serve God as a lay person, or does God want me to be ordained?  Am I more suited to public service or to quiet contemplative life?


Breathing with both lungs.

This retreat is also a wonderful opportunity to become familiar with our Catholic Church’s Eastern and Western sides.  Half of the retreat’s presenters and liturgical services will be from the tradition of the Roman  Catholic Church and the other half from the Ukrainian  Catholic Church.

What should I expect?

Informative and thought provoking talks, food, adoration, social time, food, Mass, community service work (collecting food for the local food banks), vespers, sumo wrestling, music, Divine Liturgy, food, and more...


Who is this for?

This retreat is being organized for young people who are seriously discerning God’s plan for them.  It is for mature high school students and young adults.


When is this retreat?

The weekend after Easter!  Registration will start at 6 pm on Friday, April 29 (Session 1 will starts at 7), and continues till 2 pm on Sunday, May 1.


Where is the retreat?

Holy Spirit Catholic Parish
5120 - 54 A Street, Lloydminster, AB.


Lloydminster is on the border of Alberta and Saskatchewan, located on Highway 16, almost exactly half way between Edmonton and Saskatoon.


Holy Spirit Parish can be found by turning north from Hwy 16 onto Hwy 17 (yes, the “border road” with the big orange markers).  Then go through ‘downtown’, cross the train tracks, and turn left (west) at the ESSO.  Two blocks west and you’re there!

if you get lost... call us 780-875-7802



Simple accommodations will be provided; one gender will be ‘camping out’ at Holy Spirit Church, and the other gender will be 'camping out' at St. Anthony's Church.  Please bring a ‘foamy’ or air-mattress.  

Participants can also arrange their own accommodations if they desire.
