Diocesan Youth Confirmation Retreat
The Bishop's Youth Commission (BYC) is organizing a Confirmation Retreat for diocesan youth, taking place April 21 - 23, 2023 at Mustang Island Conference Center. This retreat is for Jr. High and High School youth who are interested in being confirmed. This weekend retreat will introduce many Confirmation topics such as Scripture, the Book of Common Prayer, Sacraments, History, Spirituality, and Jesus. It will also provide opportunities for beach time, fellowship, and fun with other diocesan youth.
Leaders will share a list of the topics with each participant's home congregation with the expectation that local leaders will continue Confirmation preparations with the youth after the retreat. This could mean that a youth minister, priest, or lay person will meet with the student a few times to review what was discussed at the retreat as well as some further study topics.
Registration for the Confirmation Retreat for youth currently in 7th grade through 12th grade is open.
Questions may be directed to Suzanna Green, Bishop's Deputy for Christian Formation at firstname.lastname@example.org or to BYC co-chairs Andrew Green at email@example.com and Dawn McLendon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
