"Confirmation - Invitation"



The confirmation Retreat is to bring young people to an understanding of the meaning of the sacrament as the beginning of their journey in faith  Our goal is to invite the youth to the loving relationship/image of God, and to help them to understand how their life can look different when living as confirmed Catholics living out their faith.  The students will be invited to recognize their gifts and be able to use them in service for God.

The retreat offers students a way to creatively explore the face of Jesus hidden in friends, classmates, teachers, and family as well as discovering Jesus with them.
