​​What is COR?
COR is a Catholic youth retreat for high school aged teens.  Young adults and adults often participate in COR weekends as well.  The focus of COR is on family—both the personal families that we come from and our larger family—the Church.  It presents an opportunity for self-discovery, meeting new friends, healing relationships, encountering Jesus, and so much more!  ​

I am not Catholic, may I still attend?
Of course!  The retreat is open to members of all faith traditions.  Non-Catholics should be sponsored by a Catholic friend.  Non-Catholics are not required to participate in Catholic prayers and traditions, but they are required to be present for all scheduled events. 

May I leave early or for a few hours during the retreat?
No.  The nature of the retreat weekend requires that you be present for all events.  The retreat won’t make sense if you skip out on something.  In some instances, participants may arrive a little late on Friday.
