Catholic Truth has created the very best online Catholic retreat available. Due to the current pandemic, we created a solution to the problem. We believe in the power of good retreats and the important impact it has to help teens grow deeper in their faith. This retreat was created specifically for Confirmation classes, church groups, and individuals who need to make up a Confirmation retreat.
ABOUT OUR RETREAT
This is a complete retreat experience which consists of an ice breaker, 3 dynamic talks, and a powerful prayer service. Each talk is engaging, practical, and relevant to teens, their struggles, their questions, and their relationship with God. Each talk is accompanied by questions to help them reflect on the message and to serve as proof that they did the retreat. From beginning to end, the whole retreat runs about three hours. It may be done in a day, a weekend, or whatever time of your choosing. It’s your choice.
Talk 1: Forming Faith in God: Teens today are very skeptical and have many questions. This talk provides real answers, hard evidence, and will create a solid foundation of faith that our young people can build on for the rest of their lives.
Talk 2: What are We Living For? This is the story of God’s great love for us. It starts with sin and ends with salvation. It talks about how much Jesus did for us on the cross, and it offers practical ways for students to live their faith.
Talk 3: The Sacrament of Confirmation: This is a powerful talk about the Sacrament of Confirmation for people who have made the Sacrament or not. It talks about how this Sacrament can empower you to live out your faith and the power of the Holy Spirit. It also shares true, inspirational stories of people who do so in real life.
Prayer Service: The prayer service is a powerful encounter with God where teens have time to reflect on their lives, their struggles, and how much they live out their faith. They will also come to know just how much Jesus loves them and that He is always there for them in every high and low of life.

Fr. Joseph Gill: “As our world still deals with the aftermath of the Coronavirus crisis, many of our “normal” activities have shifted online. Growing in our relationship with Christ, too, has often been shifted online. How fitting it is that Catholic Truth has crafted a Confirmation retreat, entirely online! The retreat director is an excellent speaker – we have had him for our live retreats – and this online retreat does not disappoint. His dynamism, humor, and genuine faith comes through in these videos. This retreat would benefit all young people who are preparing for Confirmation, and anyone who wants to encounter the Lord.”
A Confirmation Parent: I liked your presentations. You were able to bring the faith to real life for the students. Just as one example; I enjoyed the illustration you chose where you were a teenager and at a party, and you chose to not to drink or smoke. You had made this decision for yourself and had to deal with ‘friends’ – some of which made fun of you for your choice and others who stood by you for your choice. I think this example of you doing what was right was a great example and your friends choosing to respect your choice and stick up for you in that choice. This was a great example to this age group nowadays to see where they can also make decisions and choices and to do what is right. Thank you for that!
Deacon Steve Pond: “I whole-heartedly endorse Catholic Truth for the online Confirmation retreat or for in person. As a Catholic deacon who has worked with youth for twelve-plus years, I can state that the retreat presenter is one of the best at what he does. Bryan is a very engaging speaker. Teens can’t help but be drawn in by his energy, emotion, and excellent delivery. The talks all use real world examples that teens can relate to, and after the talks, the Prayer Service is an absolute life-changer for the youth. The can get to know god’s love in an intimate way. I highly recommend this retreat.”
Confirmation Student: Thank you for the beautiful online retreat! It was such an amazing experience and definitely eye-opening!!
