STRONG is a Catholic college-aged retreat team that puts on high school and middle school retreats around the Diocese of Austin. With a decades-long legacy and united by a common interest in sharing God's love with the youth of our Church, STRONG reaches out to the community by setting good examples of leadership and a faith lived out.

As a student organization based out of the University Catholic Center at the University of Texas at Austin, STRONG also puts on Welcome Retreat for new members of the UT community. We are also a tight-knit family who loves to share our faith and our college experiences together.

As a retreat team, we typically hold staff retreats, travel to parishes, and host retreats for youth groups throughout the academic year. We bring well-planned and well-executed retreats to the parishes we serve. STRONG retreats are fun, exciting, colorful, energetic, faith-filled, and Christ-centered. We love sharing the rewards of knowing God, and we strive to inspire the youth we encounter to have the same passion!
