 Please join us in saying the prayer below. We ask that you pray this at least once a day for the unity and healing for all during this tumultuous time. 

Heavenly Father,

we praise you for sending your Son

to be one of us and to save us.

Look upon your people with mercy,

for we are divided in so many ways,

and give us the Spirit of Jesus to make us one in love.

We ask this gift, loving Father,

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 




This is a three-day weekend retreat for high school seniors to step out of the hectic nature of their last semester for a relaxing and prayerful experience that prepares them to be more fully rooted in Christ as they go forth from the lives they've come to know so well. "Radix" is Latin for "root". It is important for us to pay special attention to the foundations, or roots, of our faith. Seniors will be given the chance to focus on these roots and ways to nourish those that are leading them deeper in love with Jesus Christ, while pruning away those that are not.


Registration is now available for this March 5 – 7 retreat at St. Thomas More Center. It begins at 5:30pm on Friday and ends at 4:00pm on Sunday. All necessary COVID protocol will be followed during this retreat. Go to www.dmdiocese. org/Radix to register or for more information. Financial assistance is available.

CYC Registration Open
