Totus Tuus - VBS Experience


Formation for Youth in Grades 6-8

Ignite is a formation experience for grades 6-8 with a youth group feel.  Ignite offers an opportunity to build a community of brotherhood and sisterhood in Christ, find answers to life’s tough questions, and develop a friendship with Jesus that will help guide them through their teenage years in today’s world. Gatherings will include teambuilding activities, games, group prayer, and small-group discussions following lessons on important topics related to faith, prayer, and living in our world as Catholics. There will be other events scattered throughout the year which will include adoration, service projects, and social nights!  Ignite meets on bi-weekly on Sundays from 4:30-6:00 PM. 

Save the dates for our upcoming 2022-2023 Ignite gatherings: Feb. 5, Feb. 19, Mar. 5, Mar. 19, Apr. 2, and Apr. 16.

Created, A Theology of the Body Retreat

Discover God’s Plan For Love And Life!

Pregnancy Center East is offering youth in the Cincinnati area an opportunity to attend the FREE Theology of the Body Teen Retreat this summer! There will be games, reflection, and discussion as we dive into the essence of what it means to be human and how we are called to love.

What To Expect

Identity. Love. Chastity. The world is a difficult place for teens, and it has become increasingly hard for parents and educators to help teens discover the truth about their bodies, sexuality, and their unique call to love.

In an age of “selfies” and egocentrism, Pope St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body cuts through the noise to present an authentic view of the human person. It shows young people the extraordinary story of their creation as unrepeatable individuals. The program doesn’t stop there–Theology of the Body introduces teens to the truth that life is not, in fact, all about them; it is about going out of themselves to be a sincere gift to others.
