This is a community event
Mount2000 is a Catholic Retreat for High School students coordinated by the Seminarians of Mount St. Mary's Seminary in Emmitsburg, MD. For the last 20 years, Mount2000 has given students the opportunity to encounter Christ by frequently providing the sacraments of Mass and Confession. Eucharistic Adoration, talks from guest speakers, and music concerts throughout the weekend are also offered.
At Mount2000, 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, eating meals together with them, teaching them how to pray with 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.
Date: February 8-10, 2019. (The retreat is normally $65.00/participant, but participants who register before November 30th will receive a $5 discount.)
Accommodations for Mount2000 are offered at a nearby hotel - groups may reserve rooms of 4 for $79.00/night. This price includes breakfast, and the hotel is less than 10 minutes from campus.
