Confirmation Spring 2021
Confirmation will be held on Wednesday, April 14 (time to be
announced). A list of Confirmation retreats, which allow a chance for
our young people to encounter Christ, and experience transformative
moments will be announced soon. Attending a Confirmation retreat is not
only about learning the meaning of Confirmation, but also about
discovering God’s unconditional love, and the importance of entering a
relationship with Him.
Any retreat may be chosen to attend before the date of Confirmation. All
candidates are required to attend a retreat. For more information, call

we can gather in-person to have an opportunity to enhance their faith,”
