On behalf of Ryan and Elizabeth Young, the members of the board of directors, and the countless volunteers and students who have responded to the call to discipleship at Fearless Retreats, thank you very much for Dan Pietrafesa’s article, “Fearless Retreat Reinforces Teens’ Relationship With God” (CNY, Sept. 28). Without the support of organizations like Catholic New York, and individuals like Pietrafesa, we would not be able to provide Christ-centered experiences that are proving to be transformative for everyone involved.
The article was well-written and captured the essence of what Fearless Ministries is about: gently challenging teens to embrace a life of intentional discipleship. We sincerely hope our outreach will continue to “cast out into the deep” and inspire more young men and women to live the Gospel!
