Eagle Eye Ministries


Join us for an Advent Retreat in the desert of San Diego with the Community of Saint John

The long weekend will be ordered around times of silence, adoration, chanted Offices, Mass in God’s Great Wilderness, and spiritual talks. Get to know other Catholic young adults in the community while hiking and spending time together under the starry night sky.  We have two different retreat groups this year. The groups will be separate for most of the retreat, and come together for Mass on the final Sunday hike.

Classic Camping Group

A four-day camping retreat with two-all day hikes

Backpacking Group

A four-day backpacking retreat.  Overnight Camping on the trail. 

Both groups require the ability to sustain rigorous, all day hikes.

This makes for a wonderful, close-knit group. This also means you must register soon to reserve your spot.
