Life at sea
This retreat is designed for young people, 18-35 years old, who are maybe neither great sailors nor great prayers. It is not obligatory to know how to sail, it is enough for a person to have the desire to learn. It is not even necessary to have an unshakable faith, it is enough to have a longing to deepen your spiritual life.
The week is filled with time for prayer, sailing, silence, sharing and fellowship. Living through this sea adventure and being part of the crew will help us look back on our lives, recognize God’s footprints in our daily lives, and respond to his calls.
Sailing is a sport, but also fun. The life of the crew together often encourages us to have beautiful moments of fun and laughter. Still, we choose a crew lifestyle that is simple. We prefer a kitchen that is moderate, anchoring from the marina, joyful evenings on deck. The world of sailing can evoke images of luxury or encourage us to be close to nature. These are the means by which we will help ourselves, all in the direction of fidelity to the Gospel. In this way we will listen to God, allowing Him to speak to us across the sea, biblical texts, and our lives.
