111116 youth mercyDENVER — As the Jubilee Year of Mercy draws near its conclusion, the Diocese of Charlotte’s Youth Ministry recently hosted a retreat on the theme of “Enduring Mercy.”

More than 120 youths from across western North Carolina gathered at Holy Spirit Church in Denver to hear talks on God’s mercy, the Eucharist and discernment about God’s will in their lives.

The retreat was led by Father Jason Barone, Father Cory Catron and Father Jim Collins. The young people attended Mass, participated in Eucharistic Adoration and had the opportunity to go to confession during the weekend retreat.
