Other Opportunities


B.A.S.I.C. goes on two retreats during the school year, a fall retreat and a spring retreat. Retreats last from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon and are conducted off-site at overnight retreat centers. The weekend usually consists of games and team-building activities, free time, Mass, many opportunities for prayer and Adoration, small groups, and more. Each retreat is based around a theme that is relevant to teens living their faith. The youth minister and CORE lead the fall retreat, and the Teen Council leads the spring retreat.

Fall Retreat permission slip due Sunday, October 1st

RISE Conference

RISE Retreat 2023

RISE is the annual Archdiocese of Detroit’s all-day conference for high schoolers with dynamic speakers, powerful music and worship experiences, breakout sessions, small group discussion, and Liturgy. St. Anastasia takes a group of teens to the conference each year. This year’s conference is Sunday, February 4, 2024. More details coming soon!


Fast-a-thon is a yearly lock-in that begins on Good Friday and ends on Holy Saturday. Teens are encouraged to fast together for 24 hours and to break the fast with a large breakfast cooked by the teens. During the lock-in, teens partake in several contemplative sessions and learn about the Faith. (If health reasons prohibit a teen from fasting, arrangements can be made and he or she may still attend!)

Service Opportunities & Mission Trip

B.A.S.I.C. engages in several Christian service activities during the year, and each summer, B.A.S.I.C. engages in some kind of mission trip – sometimes locally – and sometimes out of town.

The Summer 2024 Mission Trip is currently being planned. We will work with Young People Who Care Inc. in Frenchville, PA, and then end the trip with a retreat debrief day at Villa Maria Education and Spirituality Center in Villa Maria, PA before returning.
The cost will be determined at a later date + meal costs during the drives on Sunday and Saturday.
Please contact John Boutin if you are interested in helping at (248) 689-8380 Ext. 108 or by email.

Cedar Point Trip

Each summer B.A.S.I.C. takes a trip to Cedar Point. Next year our trip will be in August (date to be determined)
