Mount 2000

Friday February 9

Mount St. Mary's University and Seminary, 16300 Old Emmitsburg Rd, Emmitsburg

This is the third year I've requested spaces for our group and we finally got invited to register - yeah!!! We have up to 2 spots for girls and 5 spots for boys with Tony and I chaperoning (but I think I only get to go if one of the girls signs up). Mount2000 is a Catholic Eucharistic Retreat for High School students coordinated by the Seminarians of Mount St. Mary's Seminary. For the last 17 years, Mount2000 has given students the opportunity to encounter Christ. We offer this by frequently providing the sacraments of the Mass and Confession, while also offering Eucharistic Adoration, guest speakers, and concerts! What differs Mount2000 from other High School Catholic retreats is that each group is paired with a seminarian (a student preparing for the Catholic priesthood) during the weekend. That seminarian will participate in the retreat with the group assigned to them. This includes eating meals together with them, teaching them how to pray the bible, and offering time for conversation. With almost 1500 high school students at Mount2000, having a seminarian minister to each group adds a uniquely personable element to the retreat experience.
