An online confirmation retreat

“The best part of our online Confirmation retreat is flexibility! With that in mind, we’ve crafted two separate retreat experiences based on the availability of your teens: a 4 week format or a 2 day weekend retreat. Each version comes with resources, roadmaps, and content geared towards your chosen format.” – Greater
