Confirming Faithful Families

Each year, the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry, along with retreat teams from our Catholic High Schools, offer a retreat experience for those students preparing for Confirmation. We have had nearly 1,500 youth participate in this retreat experience each year. We pray that you will consider being a part of this day.

What the students will experience is high energy music and games, powerful talks, and the opportunity to spend time with the Lord in Adoration. In addition, each Confirmation Rally includes a 1‑hour parent session during which parents will have the opportunity to hear and discuss ways that they can help foster the faith in their homes and during the formative teenage years.
