This retreat and first meeting will begin at 7 p.m. on Sept. 13 and end at 3 p.m. on Sept. 15 for the Búsqueda (Search) #46 team. Apply for the Búsqueda team by downloading and returning the team application form to the address provided by Aug. 3. The primary objective of Búsqueda is to awaken in Spanish-speaking youth (ages 14-17) the desire to be messengers of the Good News of Christ to others. It is a method, used by other movements in the Catholic Church, to guide young people to a mature, Christian human growth, gaining knowledge of themselves and their relationships with God and others. Búsqueda is presented in Spanish. For more information, contact Sr. Ana Luisa Diaz Vazquez, MCP, associate director of Hispanic youth ministry, at (501) 664-0340, ext. 320.

Applicants must be 18 to 20 years old and have served on two Búsqueda teams as directors or shared their testimony. They must be active in their parish and be able to attend all meetings and retreats.
