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 St. Benedict’s in Avon on the following Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.: September 29, February 23, and April 27. October 13 is already full. 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 $45.00 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 10:00 AM – 8:00 PM and are designed to be flexible to begin earlier or later based on the particular needs of the parishes.  Mass and reconciliation are currently part of the schedule.  Every effort will be made to customize the retreat to meet the needs of the parish(es) as we are able. For more details about the schedule please click here to see a sample schedule or feel free to contact Kent.  Click here see a sample schedule.
