Diocesan confirmation retreat now Feb. 27

Published: February 8, 2022

The Diocese of Little Rock Confirmation Retreat returns in 2022 after being canceled in 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be held Sunday, Feb. 27 at St. John Catholic Center in Little Rock. It was originally scheduled for Feb. 6 but had to be rescheduled because of winter weather.

This peer-led event is open to Catholic youth who are preparing to receive the sacrament of confirmation during the school year and are unable to attend a confirmation retreat in their own parishes.

This year's theme is: "Strengthen Each Other in the Spirit." Focusing on the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit, activities will include praise and worship music, games, skits, videos, testimonials, small group discussion, prayer and Mass. It will be held from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The $20 per person registration fee includes lunch and all materials. Scholarships are available. To register youth from your parish, download and return the registration packet with fee to the address provided by Jan. 24.

The objective of this event is to provide programming for rural churches that might have a difficult time preparing and conducting their own retreat because of limited resources.

It is co-hosted by the diocesan offices of Faith Formation and Catholic Youth Ministry. For more information, contact Tricia Gentry at (501) 664-0340, ext. 418.
