‌‌SHU Journey is an extraordinary six day residential summer experience of faith education, self-discovery, and enjoyment for high school youth. We invite Catholic high school students from rising sophomores to rising seniors who are interested in growing in and becoming leaders in their faith. SHU Journey is developed specifically for young men and women who want to become more knowledgeable, effective, confident, faith-filled leaders in their parishes, schools, and communities. During this week, six of our own college students will lead you in an exploration of faith, in small group conversations learning about yourself and real life issues, in sharing profound prayer, liturgies, and excellent music, providing service in the community, hearing famous Catholic leaders whose wisdom and experience will expand your understanding of faith, and having many fun activities on a beautiful, vibrant spiritually rich and welcoming college campus.

This exceptional week is filled with exciting activities, events, and experiences including faith instruction, small group conversations about real life issues, music ministry, prayer, reflection, liturgy, journaling, community service, key note speakers, a day trip to The Cloisters, fun activities every day, all meals and snacks, rooming with peers and Mentors in the residence hall, free time.
