Saints A.L.I.V.E. is a faith experience for students preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation.
During these retreats, students will experience witnesses, interaction with the seminarians from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, high energy music, games, and the opportunity to visit one of the Archdiocesan High Schools or Catholic Retreat Centers. A pizza lunch is included and we end the day with the Vigil Mass for Sunday.
Saints Annointed.Living.In.Virtue.Everyday.: Build Your Kingdom Here will also include a 1-hour parent session during which parents will have the opportunity to hear and discuss ways that they can help foster the faith in their homes and during the formative teenage years. This session will be held one hour prior to the Vigil Mass and parents are then able to join their child(ren) for Mass.
It is our hope that parish Confirmation Coordinators and DREs bring their confirmation students to participate in one of the Saints A.L.I.V.E.: Build Your Kingdom Here retreats during this upcoming academic year.
This one-day confirmation retreat is open to youth in grades 6,7, & 8 and must be registered through their parish. The retreat will be held from Noon- 5pm at Mother Boniface Spirituality Center 3501 Solly Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19136.
See the registration form below. You may also scan and email the registration form in, provided payment is then mailed before deadline of Friday, February 21, 2020.
