Happening is a spiritual retreat for high school students. Young people from all over the state help to plan and implement the weekend, and it is spent in a relaxed, fun, and safe environment where youth can share their faith in a Christian atmosphere.
Throughout the weekend youth, young adults, and clergy share life and faith experiences. The schedule is balanced to include a wide range of activities such as active discussion, low-key reflection time, informal musical jam sessions, and high-energy creative activities. A young person serves as “Rector” and leads the weekend with the help of clergy and a support staff.
The world-wide Happening Movement believes that Christianity is relevant to youth today and it can transform a rapidly changing world. It allows youth to develop and nourish spirituality in a fun, thoughtful, and welcoming community.
Happening weekends are open to high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors. The program begins Friday at 6:00 pm and concludes on Sunday at 5:30 pm after a closing Eucharist. Send questions to Happeningri@gmail.com.
