The Legend of Quo Vadis
The night before St. Peter was crucified, he heard that he would be arrested the next day. So he fled Rome. As Peter is leaving, along the Via Appia, he has a vision of Jesus carrying the cross heading towards Rome. St. Peter asks our Lord, “Quo Vadis?” which means “where are you going?” Jesus responds that he is going to be crucified because he, Peter, won’t. St. Peter has a conversion of heart, turns around and goes back to Rome, where his is arrested and crucified upside down the next morning.
“Quo Vadis?” is such an important question to ask the Lord at any point in your life but, in particular, it is a very important question to ask as a high schooler. High school is exciting and hard especially as you transition from middle school to high school and then high school to the next step. Teens become adults during this time and it is important to have a safe space to find community and support as they consider who they are and who they want to be in the context of asking Jesus where He is going. Quo Vadis is that safe and fun space where they can hangout, enjoy each others’ company, ask those questions they really want answered and discuss how those answers actually apply to them.
At Quo Vadis we are here for you wherever you are in your faith journey whether you have no relationship with God, you have a great relationship with God but want to go even deeper, or somewhere in between. Quo Vadis is a place where you can be yourself and you are given the opportunity to encounter Christ and find true Joy and Peace.
