Kairos registration will be posted on the parish website in the coming days along with details! Kairos is happening! We received an important update from the Archdiocese of Chicago that I am passing along as it is time sensitive:
The Archdiocese of Chicago requires that participants and leaders of all overnight retreats be 16 years old or older, and must have received the final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at least 14-days prior to the start of the retreat. Kairos is an overnight retreat and thus this rule applies to it. Please note, this retreat is OPTIONAL. No one has to go on Kairos if you are unsure about the vaccine.
Those who would like to attend this OPTIONAL retreat must receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine no later than the end of May to ensure meeting the Archdiocese’s requirement to participate.
The attached pdf has info for making a reservation to get vaccinated at Transfiguration Catholic Church in Wauconda, as one possibility that fits within our timeline. The Lake County Fairgrounds vaccination site is also taking walk-ins.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. On behalf of all our adult and teen leaders, we are so excited for this retreat, and pray that all current sophomores, juniors, and seniors out there will consider joining us!
