Confirmation Retreats

We invite your parish's Confirmation class and other high school youth to experience the tranquility of this holy place through a variety of experiences. The program for these Sunday evening retreats incorporate Holy Family's retreat theme for the season. Included in the evening is: a catechetical component, prayer experience, cooperation activity, a beautiful Reconciliation service with the help of Holy Family's very talented musicians, and a delicious dinner provided by our executive chef, Joe Ethier.

About our 2019-20 Theme


We spend our time and energy on the necessities of everyday life, which hold so many things that are beyond our control. But what is it that we are longing for in the deepest way? What is our passion in life? This year at Holy Family, we will explore that deep longing planted in our hearts by God - a longing for peace, for wholeness, and for relationships that give us joy and lift us up. Come away and rest awhile to find and pursue your deepest longing, and by doing so, may you experience how God is longing so deeply for you, too.
