Next weekend I will have the great pleasure of serving as the Spiritual Director for Great River Teens Encounter Christ #307. The TEC movement has played a very great role in my life of faith and I, if you have not yet attended a TEC retreat, I invite you to consider joining us in Quincy July 23-25.
If you are unfamiliar with the TEC movement, here is a brief bit of background information:
In the three-day weekend of TEC, you can experience being part of a vibrant, loving, and supportive faith community in which the friendship of Jesus Christ becomes a real possibility that makes sense.TEC is very human. Team members of adults and youth from various walks of life entrust to the participants some of the struggles, joys, and feelings they have experienced in their own lives. TEC provides a space to reflect upon one’s own ideals, hopes, dreams, and problems; to discover a God that you can believe in ... a Christ you can encounter as risen and alive in your midst.TEC weekends are held at the Franciscan Retreat Center of Quincy University, 18th & Seminary Road, Quincy, IL 62301. The weekend begins Saturday morning at 9:30am and ends Monday evening 6:00-6:30pm. Candidates ages 16-21 cost $50.00 and observers ages 22+ cost $100.00. Anyone of any faith denomination ages 16 and older are welcome to participate.
