A group of Mount Carmel Academy alumnae and current students gathered for the Teens Encounter Christ (TEC), a three-day retreat sponsored by the Archdiocese of New Orleans. TEC is a diocesan spiritual movement for older teens and young adults. It begins with a retreat weekend filled with dynamic reflections, music, sacraments, adoration, small group dialogue, and prayer. Afterward, the TEC community evolves into a network of support that both reinforces parish involvement and personal spiritual growth. TEC leads participants to integrate Christ’s Paschal Mystery (dying, rising, and going forth) at a time of passage through young adulthood.
The next TEC retreat will take place July 31 - August 2, 2021.
