Praying In Color: Confirmation Retreats For Parishes
“Called by Name”
A retreat is a time to step back, to be still and to nurture our relationship with God.
Parish Confirmation Retreat:
Benedictine Sisters from Sacred Heart Monastery will come to your parish to assist your students in their preparation for Confirmation. Better yet, you may bring your students to the monastery to experience prayer with the Sisters as part of the retreat.
The creative and experiential five-hour retreat, led by an experienced team (link to staff) focuses on a conversation about the gifts of the Holy Spirit, embracing the sacrament of Baptism, and their vocation and service to the Church.
