Sisters Mary Thomas and Juana Teresa led a retreat in Garden City, Kansas, at Saint Dominic’s Parish on October 12th for twenty-five teenagers who are beginning classes for Confirmation.
The focus of the retreat was to help the youth prepare for this next Sacrament of Initiation by examining the areas of their faith in need of growth. The Sisters made a booklet for each youth that included reflections on what they expected to learn from the retreat, where they think they are in their walk with the Lord, and why they need to be Confirmed. At the end of the day, the booklets were put into a time capsule. After they are Confirmed, they will have another one-day retreat, when they will open the capsule to see where they were and how far they have come.
