Diocesan Youth Retreat

  • DuBose Conference Center 635 College Street Monteagle, TN 37356 (map)

Join young people from around the Diocese for a journey up the mountain for a retreat from the busyness to connect with God and each other.

This program provides youth with an opportunity to meet other Episcopal young people and explore faith and community during the season of Lent as we anticipate the arrival of Easter. The program includes contemplative and creative worship, reflection, games, hiking, fun, rest, and more.

We’ll be chartering a bus from Nashville on Friday evening at 5PM and returning to Nashville on Saturday at 5PM. Meals and cabin style lodging will be provided at DuBose Conference Center.

Students are welcome to meet us at DuBose at 7:30PM and parents may pick up from DuBose at 3:00PM on Saturday.

What is Seeds of Spring? It is a Friday evening and Saturday daytime overnight spiritual retreat for the youth of our diocese and their adult chaperones. Your group will have the opportunity to unplug from the distractions and stresses of daily life to connect with God and one another in our sacred space on the mountain.
