Youth care about our Earth and Faith too! Youth who have an interest and passion in integrating care for the earth with their faith are encouraged to attend with an adult or another youth attending the Earth-Honoring Faith retreat so that together they can work to bring change to their families, faith communities and the world. Morning sessions merge with the instructors of the Earth-Honoring Faith. Time for hiking, swimming, service, cultural experiences, small group sessions, prayer services and being on the land is included.
Instructors: Franciscan Sr. Joan Brown (Director of New Mexico Interfaith Power & Light) and Todd Wynward (wilderness educator and author of Rewilding the Way: Break Free to Follow an Untamed God) lead the youth experience. or call the Registrar’s Office at 505.685.1001 or 505.685.1017
Ghost Ranch, 21,000 acres located in Northern New Mexico, is an ecumenical and interfaith education and retreat center of the Presbyterian Church (USA). For over half a century, people have come here for spiritual development, to discuss issues of peace and justice, to work together in creation care, to paint and write, to hike and to ride horseback, to research rich and globally renowned archeological and fossil quarries, to see where Georgia O’Keeffe painted, to try something new or to simply rest and renew their spirits.
