Catholic Truth has created the very best online Catholic retreat for teens available to date. Due to the current pandemic, we have created a solution to the problem believing that teens should continue to grow in faith and nourish it with a powerful retreat experience. Retreats are absolutely an important part of the journey!
This retreat was created specifically for Confirmation classes, church groups, and individuals who need to make up a Confirmation retreat. It was also made for any teen or young adult who would like a retreat experience and desires to grow in their faith.
ABOUT OUR RETREAT
This is a complete retreat experience, not just a talk and a song. From beginning to end, the whole retreat lasts three hours. This may be done in a day, a weekend, or a week or more. That is up to you. The retreat consists of an introduction and an icebreaker, three engaging talks, and a powerful prayer service. Each talk is engaging, practical, and relevant to teens, their struggles, and their questions. Each talk is accompanied by questions to help them reflect on the message and verify that they watched the videos. The talks are as follows:
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.
This retreat may be done in 3 hours, or it could be done over in one day or over a weekend. Watch a talk, fill out the questions, and take a break. Repeat.

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.”
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.”
This is an online retreat for your church and your program. However, this retreat was also created for individual teens and young adults who may want a retreat experience or to grow in their faith.
It consists of five videos. Each video has a button below it with a link leading to questions for that particular video. These questions will help teens to reflect on the message and assure you as the director that they watched and payed attention to the videos. At the end of the retreat, they will send you the questions that they filled out. It’s that simple. We have made a sheet you can send your group with all of the information.
