Confirmation Alternative Virtual Retreat Option

Each teen must complete the retreat with their sponsor. We prefer that the sponsor be present in person for them to have the best experience together, but of course, if that’s not possible, other means may be used to include them in the retreat experience (zoom, face time, etc.)

The retreat must be completed by May 16th and the completed discussion guide from the retreat needs to be turned in to the youth ministry office as proof of completion.

Holy Spirit Parish Youth Ministry Page 


The Catechism's section on Confirmation says that Confirmation is the special outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Its effects are to:

    • Root us more deeply in divine filiation (being children of God)
    • Unites us more firmly to Christ
    • Increases the gifts of the Holy Spirit in us
    • Strengthens our bond with the Church
    • Associates us more closely to her mission of bearing witness to Christ
    • Helps us and more strictly obliges us to spread and defend the faith by word and deed

Confirmation's effect: it configures us for a full & active mission of service to Christ.
