YPER FAQs

1. When is YPER?
Youth Prayer Experience Retreat will begin from 12 December (Thursday) 7.45pm to 15 December (Sunday), 7pm.

2. What is the age range for YPER?
YPER is for those aged 18 to 29 years of age.

3. Can I attend YPER if I can’t make it for every session in the retreat?
YPER is a continuous stay-in programme. Every part of the programme links to and sets up the next. Much like watching a movie- it’s hard to follow the plot if you miss parts of it. To reap the maximum benefits from this camp, please ensure that you are able to attend the full retreat. If you are unable to be present throughout the entire duration of the retreat, we encourage you to sign up for future runs of YPER or other programmes in CSC.

4. Why is it necessary to have attended YCER/CER/Awaken before?
YPER is a follow-up programme from the YCER/CER/AWAKEN. As the talks are geared towards maturing your prayer life, and structured as a build-up from the YCER/CER/Awaken retreats, it will be more beneficial for those who have attended the previous retreats.

5. I have not attended YCER/CER/AWAKEN before, but I have attended other retreats. Can I attend YPER?
While we understand that you may have attended other retreats, we will only accept past CSC retreatants for the reasons mentioned above. However, we hope to include other retreats in future.

6. Can I attend YPER if (a) I am not a Catholic, or (b) I am a foreigner not residing in Singapore, or (c) I am a Singaporean worshipping in a Catholic church in another country?
YPER is for Singaporean Catholics only.

7. Will there be a ballot like CER?
No, registrations are on a first come first serve basis.

8. How do I register for YPER?
Registration opens 1 November. The link to the online registration portal will be posted on our website, YPER Registration and our social media channels.

Besides the usual cash or cheque payment modes, e-payment options via PayNow or Interbank transfer is also available. Payment must be made 3 days from the date of registration, otherwise the registration will be nullified and the place released to another person.

9. When will I know if I am successful in getting a place in the retreat?
You will receive a confirmation email from us 15 days from the date of payment. If you did not receive the email, please first confirm that the email did not arrive in your Spam/Junk folder before contacting us at 6288 7901 or cscretreats@gmail.com.

10. Can I transfer my registration to someone else, or defer my participation if I can’t make it?
It is important to ensure that you are fully available to attend the retreat from 7.45pm on 12 Dec to 6.30pm on 15 Dec before you register, as fees paid are non-refundable. You will also not be able to defer your registration to a future YPER or transfer to another person if you are unable to attend.
