SEARCH: The Best Kept Secret in the Diocese of Raleigh

What is Search?

Search is a peer-led retreat weekend sponsored by the Diocese of Raleigh that touches people’s lives because it encourages participants to seek and find Christ in them and in one another. It is a series of witness talks and activities prepared and given by a team of high school youth. The weekend gives you the opportunity to look at your faith and life in a new way.


Who goes to Search?

10th, 11th, and 12th graders, and adults who work with them, who want to be a part of an exciting and different weekend attend a Search Retreat. People participate in the Search program for various reasons. Some go to experience something different, others to meet and spend time with people their own age. Some have a strong faith while others are questioning God’s existence. Don’t let nervousness stand in the way of a special weekend. Please join us for an experience that will be long remembered.
