Dear Eagle Eye Parents and Participants,
TEENS, 16-18 years old and already strong in their Catholic Faith, are invited to a deepening of that faith during the 2020 Eagle Eye Summer Institute in Maria Stein, OH! Come join us on an eight-day summer session full of fun, friendship, recreation, prayer, and study. Led by the Brothers and Sisters of St. John, we are dedicated to helping you make this experience the best it can be!
After 15 years of housing our institute at the Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation in Carey, OH, the retreat house has closed to overnight programs. We pray for the continued guidance of Our Blessed Mother as we find our new home at Maria Stein Retreat Center located in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.
This summer, our classes focus on our theme "The Pursuit of Goodness: What About it Makes Life Worth Living?" Our study theme, along with daily Mass, Offices, and a Holy Hour, gives teens time to grow closer to Christ. We encourage you to take this opportunity to know God and discover His plan for you.
We will welcome all participants on Saturday evening, June 13th, at The Spiritual Center of Maria Stein in Maria Stein, Ohio. Please arrive between 6 and 6:30 p.m. No dinner will be served on Saturday, but we will offer ample snacks/dessert during the evening.
Our website link asks for completion of our form needed for registration (please submit as soon as possible but before May 12). Christine Friedrich is our registration coordinator. Delicious meals, comfortable lodging, camping fees, and study materials, as well as travel and expenses for the team of religious are included in the non-refundable registration fee of $375 (Checks to be made out to Eagle Eye Ministries). Please note - a discount will automatically be applied when multiple teens in the same family are registered together.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. When registering, please be sure to indicate if your family has a tent that you are willing to share. Eagle Eye will begin with an overnight hiking and camping trip. The Eagle Eye experience will end on Sunday, June 21, with Mass at 11:30am, followed by a potluck lunch. We invite your family to join us on Sunday for Mass and the lunch. We ask you to please bring a dish to share. Beverages, table settings, and condiments will be provided. Last year, we were blessed with 40 young people attending Eagle Eye as well as the various volunteers, so there will be many hungry people. Your help in preparing a main dish to pass (ex. chicken, casserole, etc.) is greatly appreciated. As any veteran of potlucks will tell you, remember to label your dishes! If you have any questions or are willing to help coordinate the potluck lunch, please contact Kathy Kimar before May 24th at (330) 904-2279.
We are fortunate to have many volunteers helping to organize the Eagle Eye Summer Institute. We are grateful for those who have willingly donated time and/or food to make this retreat possible. We always welcome the assistance of volunteers. We plan to reach out to the parents of all participants in a few months as we realize our needs at the new location. We look forward to seeing you at our 2020 Eagle Eye Teen Summer Institute in June! Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us throughout this endeavor!
