The Open Confirmation retreat is open to all parishes of the Archdiocese of Newark. Participants in this retreat get to experience the larger Church community by meeting youth from other parishes who are on the same journey. This day is ideal for either the beginning of your youth’s Confirmation preparation, or as a synthesis of the preparation right before receiving the Sacrament. The day includes workshops on topics such as Prayer, Service, the Sacraments, Discipleship, Models of the Church, Gifts of the Holy Spirit, and will end with the Celebration of the Eucharist.
