When: 1 p.m. Saturday, December 19 through Sunday, December 20, 2015
Where: Meet behind the Convent; the retreat will be held at Gwinwood Christian Conference Center
Your Confirmation retreat is a time set aside to grow in faith and community. This year’s retreat will be held at the Gwinwood Christian Camp and Conference Center on December 19-20. We found that this weekend has been requested because you don't have the weight of finals or homework and you're able to simply enter into the retreat experience.
Gwinwood is a very beautiful spot that has a lake and trails. You will sleep in bunk beds in rooms shared with fellow teens.
The retreat is designed to be a change of pace from the types of activities that you do everyday. To this end you may bring your phone however it should be turned off, stored away and should not to be used during the retreat except for emergencies. Please do not plan to call/text anyone and do not ask anyone to call/text you.
Please bring everything you pack to St. Charles Borromeo Parish’s parking lot by 1 p.m. Saturday, January 19. We will pack vehicles and leave immediately so please be prepared. We will return to the Parish on Sunday around 5:30 p.m. Please do not make any plans until after that time. There will be no Teen Night that evening.
