Open Confirmation Retreats
Join us for an exciting, inspiring retreat where you can connect with Jesus and others who are on the Confirmation journey. Our SPIRITUS team of young adult evangelizers makes discussing faith topics fun and interesting. These retreats are open to parishes with a small number of students needing to attend a Confirmation retreat or to students who were not able to attend their parish retreat.
*Registration closes the Wednesday prior to the retreat.
