Eagle Eye Ministries

Ohio Young Adult Summer Institute

From the Director: Our Eagle Eye Planning Team is delighted to welcome you to our Summer Institute!

We are eager to enter the ninth year offering Eagle Eye Summer Institute in Ohio after the enthusiasm of young adults filled last summer's program in Cincinnati. Eagle Eye is different than any other young adult retreat. Father Nathan Cromly of the Community of St. John launched Eagle Eye fourteen years ago with the idea to go as deep and as intense as we possibly can at all levels: prayer, formation, friendship, and Christian living. This program is destined to give those who want it, a taste of what it means to be truly Catholic and in love with Christ. For eight days, young adults, already strong in the understanding and practice of their faith, challenge themselves to a deeper appreciation and awareness of that faith.

We hope the location meets the needs of young adults in a wide geographic area, not just limited to Ohio. The retreat begins on Saturday, August 5th, with an invigorating outdoor experience. After two days of hiking and camping in Kentucky's Red River Gorge, we will continue our journey at Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in Cincinnati, Ohio through Sunday, August 13. This magnificent retreat center previously served as a seminary for the diocese. Here we will focus on the theme: "Passion with a purpose: how can I do what I want and want what I should?" Along with holy Mass, prayer, adoration, recreation and quiet time as part of the daily schedule, we will be led in Philosophy and Theology classes by religious from the Community of St. John.


We work to make Eagle Eye Ohio affordable to all who desire to participate. Delicious meals, comfortable lodging, camping fees and materials are included in the registration fee of $340.
