Retreats are an important part of any persons faith life, but especially during one’s teenage years as students face more and more pressures from school, work and extracurricular activities. A retreat is an opportunity to get away, pray, reflect, and grow closer in your relationship with Jesus.

Retreats/days/evenings of reflection requirement: Middle school (6, 7 & 8) should participate in one retreat/reflection once during their 6th-8th grade years; high school (9 & 10) are required to attend at least one retreat/reflection each year and/or participate in the Ministry Apprenticeship program in addition to CRE. Students will also have the option to attend other retreats such as Men of Christ, Women of Christ, or other retreats upon approval from the Youth Ministry office. Participation in the Youth Mission Trip and the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC) satisfies the requirement.

All Confirmation candidates are required to attend a retreat as part of their preparation to receive the sacrament as per Archdiocesan guidelines. These retreats are usually held in spring with the other candidates from the parish. Please contact the Faith Formation office at 262-284-2102 for more information.
