What is Arco Iris?
If your teen came home one afternoon and had suddenly become far more respectful, helpful and responsible . . . if instead of the usual weekend activities, your teen spent each and every Friday evening in a spiritual gathering, you might wonder what had gotten into him. For Catholic youth the answer is “Arcoiris.” “Arcoiris” Youth Evangelizers has four goals: evangelize youth and young adults; evangelize families; promote religious vocations and expand the movement. The “Arcoiris” (Spanish word for “rainbow”) Catholic youth retreat is an intense, three-day retreat especially designed for young adults and teenagers of Catholic faith where deeply spiritual activities are integrated with important lessons in social issues, creating a combination of spiritual and civic formation. It is an experience of faith and grace focusing on each participant’s encounter with himself, with Jesus and with others as the beginning of a conversion to a new life with Jesus.
¿Qué es Arcoíris?
Si su adolecente llega a casa una tarde y de repente se ha convertido en una persona mucho más respetuosa, útil y responsable . . . si en vez de las actividades comunes del fin de semana, se pasa cada viernes en la tarde en una reunión espiritual, usted se preguntará que lo hizo llegar a eso. Para jóvenes Católicos la respuesta es “Arcoíris”. Adolescentes Evangelizadores Arcoíris tiene cuatro metas: evangelización de los adolescentes y jóvenes; evangelización de la familia; vocaciones religiosas y la extensión del movimiento. El encuentro Católico Arcoíris es un retiro intenso de tres días especialmente diseñado para adolescentes de fe Católica donde se mezclan actividades profundamente espirituales con lecciones importantes en asuntos sociales, creando una combinación de formación espiritual y cívica. Es una experiencia de Fe en la cual el adolescente se encuentra consigo mismo, con Jesús y con los demás. Es el inicio de una conversión a una nueva vida con Jesús.
