A NOTE ABOUT SERVICE TEAMS
At ECHO, you will have the unique opportunity to build community with other young adults over the weekend as you journey together into the Theology of the Body, and you will have the opportunity to journey alongside teenagers as they experience the retreat the following week. As Gaudium et Spes tells us, we only find ourselves through the sincere gift of ourselves. Our team spends time praying and discerning various service teams for young adults prior to the retreat. While we cannot guarantee you will be placed on the team you choose, we do take seriously your choice in our discernment. Be not afraid!
The mentor team will journey alongside teens by leading our version of small groups, called "family groups." They will work together as they help teens unpack and process what they are receiving during sessions and throughout their experience of the retreat.
The prayer team is the backbone of the retreat. They will spend time meeting together while praying and interceding for the teens throughout their experience of ECHO.
The hospitality team's main task is to create and maintain spaces during ECHO to help teens encounter Christ and have an amazing ECHO experience.
