About the Retreat

Are you looking for a retreat for your Confirmation candidates as they prepare to receive the sacrament?

Diocesan Confirmation Retreats are planned for this school year. They will be at Sacred Heart Parish in Sauk Rapids on the following Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.: September 21, October 12, November 16, 2019 and February 1, 2020.  Each retreat can host between 50-60 people, so sign up early through the registration link to register your students.  We are happy to accept 1 or 2 students or as many as we have room for to accommodate parishes.  Each parish is requested to bring at least 1 adult leader per 1-8 students. Cost for the retreat is $40.00 per student and $15.00 per adult. As always, we are very willing to come to individual parishes or clusters to lead retreats. Contact Kent to schedule one.


Retreats are scheduled for 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM and are designed to be flexible to begin earlier or later based on the particular needs of the parishes.  Mass is currently part of the schedule with the possibility of Reconciliation be offered.  Every effort will be made to customize the retreat to meet the needs of the parish(es) as we are able.  Schedule


Please, only Parish Leaders may click here  to sign up your group using SignUpGenius.  If you do not bring payment with you the day of the retreat your parish will be invoiced.
