Whether in an external venue or at our Just Youth Spiritan Centre, discovery days–otherwise known as retreats–are a rare chance for pupils to step back from the pressures of life and have a day to themselves. We develop each discovery day around a particular theme, encouraging young people to explore key issues, inform opinions, and discern their values throughout the day

Some of our most popular themes include..

  • Community building
  • Self esteem
  • Mental wellness
  • Sacramental preparation
  • Choices
  • Transition
  • Catholic Social Teaching
  • Seasonal focus for the Church’s liturgical year

Each discovery day retreat programme is tailored specifically to the needs and abilities of the group of young people. We want all young people that work with us to enjoy themselves but to also emerge from the retreat having learned at least one thing that they can use or refer to in later life. In order to ensure that our content is accessible and relevant to all, we maintain consistent contact with your school or group prior to the discovery day(s).
