Envision Yourself - a high school retreat

Do you know someone of high school age who would make a good Pastor?
CLS is hosting a weekend retreat for high school aged students to come and spend a couple of days envisioning what it would be like to train to be a Pastor in Lutheran Church Canada.
The retreat begins on Friday, May 13th in the early evening, and concludes after attending a local worship service on Sunday morning (May 15th).

The cost, which includes food and accommodations, is only $50, and CLS has also set aside some funding to help with travel for those who need it.

More information is included with the Registration Form, found here:
