Confirmation Retreats for 2018 - 2019
Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation is the responsibility of the pastor and those he delegates from the parish in conjunction with the parents of the candidate. For years, Alicia Alvarez has met with the PCL’s of the Diocese of Lubbock to form the Catechetical Leaders of these parishes. In an effort to realign the Evangelization and Formation Division, the Confirmation retreats, if required by your pastor, will now fall under the Office of Evangelization and Catechesis.
What does that mean for you…?
You can continue to plan and give your own Confirmation retreat. You can work with a group of parishes to give your own cluster retreat. You can work with your deanery to give a deanery retreat. You can invite D.Y.R.T. to your parish for you retreat You can contact Alicia Alvarez (806 792 3043 x222) for help in planning your retreat or working with her to have a deanery/cluster/parish retreat. Retreats are not required to be overnight unless that is a pastoral decision. Retreats are not a substitute for catechetical instruction for Confirmation.
