Confirmation Retreat

Register here for your Confirmation Retreat. Confirmation is not a mere moment in time, it is an explosion of graces impressed upon your spirit that can be harnessed for the rest of your life. Perhaps you have desired to call Jesus your friend. The gift of the Holy Spirit can transform Him into the King of your heart, the one treasure of your life. Abide deeply with the Lord during this retreat of inner examination.
