A parish of the Diocese of Owensboro located in Whitesville, Kentucky

St Mary of the Woods Youth Ministry 


The Lazarus Retreat is open to all High School students grade 9-12. The retreat is limited to 25 boys and 25 girls; and parishes are limited to sending only five youth. Applications will be taken on a first come first serve basis. 

As we journey through the story of Lazarus, young people will see what it means to be dead in this world and alive in Christ. This retreat is to be an intentional invitation to the life Christ offers. 

If you are interested in attending the Lazarus Retreat, please contact Jessy Bennett at the office (270) 233-4196 or jessy.bennett@stmarywoods.com.
