Retreats Help Us Grow Spiritually
Our Religious Education Program offers different opportunities for our students to go on retreat. They are required for their Sacramental journey.
Candidates who are looking to make their First Holy Communion, must attend two prayer days throughout the calendar year.
- Reconciliation Prayer Day - This very short retreat teaches and encourages children to know how participate of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
- Eucharistic Prayer Day - This mini retreat requires parent participation.
These only last a few hours due to the age of the candidates, but are necessary for their spiritual growth and understanding of the Sacrament they are about to receive.
Confirmation candidates must attend a two year program and an all -day retreat is required prior to confirmation. Usually this retreat takes place at a facility outside our Parish grounds. This year our confirmation candidates attended the retreat at Lourdes Shrine in Litchfield.
