Mission + Vision

INTO the DEEP is a 501(c)(3) organization with the mission of facilitating true understanding of our identity, reason for being, and dignity as body-soul persons made in the image of God. In a nutshell, we want you to be able to answer the question, "who am I and why am I here?" This is accomplished through both indoor and outdoor "I.D. Retreats", teaching seminars, study groups, and speaking engagements for both youth and adults.

I.D. RETREATS bring the unique mission and vision of Into the Deep out to a setting we were made for; it is the name specifically applied to both the camping and lodge-based retreats that are offered through Into the Deep.

What's so important about this Mission?

Questions about identity, the purpose of life, and the desire for love are universal. Each person deserves to know what it really means to be made in the image of God and to fully participate in the Story that we are all a part of.

As a baseline behind Into the Deep's mission, the Theology of the Body offers a language that helps us examine who we are created to be as human persons and how we are called to love like God loves. Opening our heads and hearts to His original plan for us has the potential to transform how we believe, live, and articulate our Catholic faith.

Into the Deep invites people of all ages to encounter God, neighbor, and our unrepeatability through Eucharist-centered prayer, lessons on the Theology of the Body, and the adventure of truly living and loving as God intended.
