Young Adult Fall Retreat 2021



Young Adult Fall Retreat 2021
October 22-24, 2021
Ramada Plaza Nags Head Oceanfront
Kill Devil Hills, NC

We all need to take time to rest, retreat from the world, and recharge. This fall, young adults from across the Diocese of Richmond have an opportunity for a spiritual weekend retreat in an idyllic, relaxing environment. The retreat will include a keynote speaker who will give a series of relevant, practical, inspiring, and challenging talks, and a priest will be available throughout the weekend for Mass, Reconciliation, and Eucharistic Adoration. There will also be ample opportunities for prayer, fellowship, and downtime. Join us for our Young Adult Retreat where we will RECHARGE & BREATHE together.

Who should attend this retreat?
The diocesan Young Adult Fall Retreat is intended for young adults ages 18-39. All attendees should be out of high school. Single people and married couples are all welcome. Though the retreat is designed for Catholics, interested young adults of any faith backgrounds are welcome to attend.

Where and when is the retreat?
The retreat will take place October 22-24, 2021 at the Ramada Plaza Nags Head Oceanfront on the beach in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. Located within a 15-minute drive of Nags Head Fishing Pier, this retreat location is only a three-hour drive from Richmond and just around the corner from Hampton Roads.

The address is: 1701 S. Virginia Dare Trail, Kill Devil Hills, NC 27948. Registration will begin at 7:00pm on Friday, October 22, and the retreat will conclude by 12:00noon on Sunday, October 24.

Where will I stay?
All participants will stay in rooms at the Ramada Plaza Nags Head Oceanfront. Single participants will be placed with one other person of the same gender in a room with two queen beds, though they have the option of designating a roommate during the registration process or upgrading to a private room (an additional $50). A married couple attending together will have a private room together.
