Throughout their 8th grade year, teens will continue to develop a personal relationship with Jesus, grow in knowledge of our faith and deepen their understanding of the Sacrament of Confirmation. Students are required to attend a Confirmation Retreat prior to Confirmation. Each retreat is “experiential;” action-packed with engaging activities that will foster fellowship and faith growth. They also include inspirational talks, small group discussions, powerful prayer experiences, and food. Each retreat is run by a St. Jude staff member (Jenny or Matthew Krumdrick) with experienced and trained adult leaders. Because each student has different interests and schedules, each retreat offers a unique setting with diverse activities and are scheduled throughout the year, starting this summer.
