1. CONFIRMATION RETREAT (Virtual)

 

This is a half day Virtual Retreat focusing on Candidates receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation! We have taken the Confirmation retreat that we run in person and adjusted much of it to fit into a virtual experience. Our program has been broken down into sections, so candidates can go through the program in a morning or afternoon as time permits.
Churches can organize for their candidates to run the virtual experience together on a specific date, or allow families to have the opportunity to experience it individually at home and complete by a specific date.

Parishes will register for our Retreat via our Platform. They can then add a personalized account for each student to log into. Parish leaders, Catechists, Youth Ministers or Confirmation Coordinators can keep track of the progress that every student has made. The platform does not allow you to move onto the next section unless the entire video is complete. At the end of every section, we have a few questions to answer regarding the video.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

The Candidates will log into their account. Select the Retreat from their dashboard. Then go through each session one at a time until complete. Candidates cannot skip sessions or fast forward through videos.

 

The Program includes:

  • Welcome Video

  • Games

  • Activities

  • Guided Prayer and music

  • Talks

    • SESSION 1: "What do you want?"​

    • SESSION 2: "Why have the Mark?"

    • SESSION 3: "Hearing God's voice"

  • Powerful Prayer Session

  • Questions – to be done with a small group organized by the parish or with parents
