“Deep Adventure: A Unique Retreat Experience for Catholic Men”

By: Frances Dolores

Though a beachside retreat might sound like a literal day in the sun, the ones being offered by World Champion Surfer Bear Woznick are a little more rigorous than tanning and umbrella drinks by the surf. Here, a group of Catholic men from across the United States find out the shallow end is simply not an option when it comes to deepening their relationship with Christ. Their limits and personal boundaries will be tested through various physical and spiritual exercises, and you’ll be there supporting them every step of the way when “Deep Adventure” premieres at 10 p.m. ET, Wednesday, June 22—after a special EWTN Live interview with Bear Woznick.

As soon as the sun comes up, the sands are lined with colorful fold out chairs, but they’re not for lounging. They’re for Holy Mass with Fr. Mark Goring, who delivers an inspiring homily on Christ’s role as the sacrificial Lamb of God. After that, the men try out Flyboarding: an air/water propelled device that lets riders hover above the ocean’s surface, but requires an incredible amount of balance to do so. Their speaker, Dr. Lance Maki, then uses that exercise to teach more on the virtues of Prudence and Temperance, which both require balance, self-mastery, and practice—much like surfing and flyboarding. Once lunch is over, the men hit the waves once more before hitting the hay, so they can wake up and start day two. You read that right: that was only their first day.

In addition to wipeouts and wild waves, you’ll meet three young attendees up close and personal: Justin, a newly engaged college grad; J.R., a high-school grad who believes God is calling him to be more than just a college football star; and Travis, an Iraqi veteran who is struggling with the death of his younger brother. Each of them reflect at the end of each day’s events, highlighting what stood out the most to them individually. By the end of the retreat, all three men are profoundly changed. How? You’ll just have to dive in and see for yourself!

Be sure to catch “Deep Adventure,” an EWTN Event beginning at 8 p.m. ET with a special EWTN Live interview with Bear Woznick and Fr. Mitch Pacwa, followed by this incredible and unique retreat documentary at 10 p.m. ET.

If you’re tired of being spoon-fed the message that you just need to be “nicer,” this book is for you. READ MORE…
Host of EWTN’s “Deep Adventure Radio,” and two-time Masters World Champion Surfer, Bear Woznick is the Adventure Guide for Deep Adventure Quest Retreats, where people step out of their comfort zone and into the danger zone of God’s will. In Deep Adventure: The Way of Heroic Virtue, Bear shares his real-life adventures as a way to challenge you to go deeper with God and live a life of virtue. Pulse-pounding stories of ocean rescues, huge waves and deadly encounters with sharks show us that when people abandon themselves to God, they do not become some soft, pastel version of themselves. On the contrary, a life lived in pursuit of God’s will is the boldest, most rewarding way possible to live.
