Retreat Overview

All 8th graders preparing for Confirmation are invited to join Bishop Rhoades, priests, religious,  students and leaders from across the diocese  for a day of prayer, the sacraments, engaging talks and activities, and even sometime for fun and games. 



Please contact your parish or school to register through your home parish. If you are at a parish that will not be attending, students are welcome to attend with a parent who has completed safe environment training and has been placed on the Diocesan chaperone list for the event.


The Diocesan Sealed by the Spirit Confirmation Retreat is a unique opportunity for our Confirmation students to gather as a diocese with our bishop for a day of catechesis, prayer, and encounter with Christ. Our mission is to help prepare our Confirmation students to better understand and appreciate the sacrament they are about to receive.
