LEAP is a unique, communal, and deeply personal experience that is built upon talks, activities and group dynamics to deepen one's personal faith in God and commitment to God's people. The retreat has a series of very personal talks about who we are as individuals and who we are as a Christian community, and it explores the meaning of self-awareness, commitment, peace, prayer and faith in one's life and the challenges these elements present. LEAP is a Christian community that helps participants discover the presence of Christ in their lives, and encourages acceptance, tolerance, and appreciation of people with different gifts, talents, interests, abilities, and backgrounds as elements of the Body of Christ.
LEAP began over 25 years ago as an outgrowth of Cursillo. The program is sponsored by the Catholic Diocese of Burlington and the Society of Saint Edmund, and is currently under the direction of Jason Moore. While the program is based at Saint Michael's, it is open to all young women and men between 18 and 25 years of age.
