Retreats help high school teens take a greater ownership in their faith and help them prepare for the sacrament of Confirmation. They also provide the teens with the opportunity to share faith discussions and prayer experiences with other teens as well as reflect on their personal gifts and strengths.

Retreats help the teens see that God is present in their lives. The following retreats are offered through L.I.G.H.T. and are required in order to receive the sacrament of Confirmation.
