We’d like to invite you to partner with Precious Blood Renewal Center to give your confirmation class an enriching retreat experience that will be a highlight of their sacramental journey.
Elizabeth Madeo and Fr. Ron Will, CPPS, both experienced retreat leaders, will lead Confirmation retreats on two Saturday and two Sunday afternoons during the next academic year. Retreats run 1-5 p.m. We can celebrate Mass if you want that.
You can register your youth as a group or youth can register individually. If youth register individually, they need to identify their parish.
Each retreat will combine groups from several parishes so that your confirmation candidates can meet other Catholic youth from our area. Rates are reasonable: $20 per participant which covers supplies and snacks. Scholarships are available.
We will use scripture, music, guided meditations, art, group activities, and a walk on our labyrinth, as ways of engaging your students’ minds and hearts.
The basic framework is to focus on how your candidates have already experienced the influence of the Holy Spirit since their Baptism, and how they can open themselves now to a much more powerful and dynamic experience of that Holy Spirit.
The same Holy Spirit who came down upon the Apostles on the original Pentecost wants to come down upon them in their Confirmation. Just like Pentecost was not a one-day experience, neither is Confirmation. We will share experiences of how that has happened.
Space is limited, so register as soon as you can.
Let us host your retreat. We will provide meeting space, beautiful grounds for reflection, food according to your needs, and A/V equipment as needed. We can provide a presider to celebrate Mass if you need one.
