Water of Life - Joint DioNH and DioWMa Youth Retreat

Water is one of the building blocks of life, both our physical life but also our spiritual life. In the waters of baptism we are, in the words of the Prayer Book, "buried with Christ in his death. By it we share in his resurrection. Through it we are reborn by the Holy Spirit." This weekend we will pray about the living waters that nourish our faith and our bodies. Where are the waters of baptism leading us in this season? What can we do to protect the waters of our homeland so that they can continue to nourish the earth? Join us for a fun-filled weekend at Barbara C. Harris Camp as we explore these questions, make new friends, sing songs, play games, worship God, and get to know youth from around the Dioceses of New Hampshire and Western Massachusetts.
