Retreats & Overnights

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


Alpha Day Away or Overnight

Teens are invited to our Alpha Youth retreat (as a part of the Teen Alpha program) to grow in their faith and see the power of the Holy Spirit in their lives. This fun and interactive event is coupled with awesome faith and prayer experiences!

Contact the Youth Ministry Office with questions.
