St. John Paul II Kayak Trip

  • Borromeo House 905 Duncan Lane Austin, TX, 78705 United States (map)
Growth in holiness is a journey in community, side by side with others.
— Pope Francis

Inspired by the early years of St. John Paul II’s ministry, our annual kayak trip is an opportunity for young men (18-35 years old) who are discerning their vocation, to persevere in that discernment but with a greater sense of community. One of the surest ways to build community is through a common experience such as learning from a brother (or teaching a brother) how to kayak or jumping into the cool water from a rope swing. The community we’ve seen come from this trip is one that can last great distances and time.

We’ll kickoff the day at 7 a.m. with adoration, morning prayer and breakfast tacos before we head out to Texas Rowing Center. After a couple of hours on Lady Bird Lake, we’ll come back to the Borromeo House for Mass and lunch.


There is no cost for this trip.
