Winterfest

Winterfest is a mountaintop retreat for 9th through 12th graders to grow in their faith away from their busy lives and distractions. Every year, we focus on a different theme and this year was "I BELIEVE," as we looked closely at the Apostles’ Creed. High school-aged kids from all over the three dioceses of Tennessee (and farther afield) came to celebrate in faith together and play fun games, as well as to have discussions about the Apostles’ Creed and what it means to believe versus to know. The eight Christ Church Cathedral Youth who attended really contributed to the success of the week—from helping with the band to some incredible talent show performances, they were a blessing to have there. Winterfest is a great time to be on the mountaintop with God and friends, and the Youth from Christ Church Cathedral had the largest presence of any church! Everyone at DuBose was happy to have such a wonderful group of kids there and cannot wait to see them again this summer for Camp Gailor Maxon!
