Confirmation Retreats


The Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls is offering a fall confirmation retreat that St. Thomas More Parish in Brookings has offered to host. This retreat is focused on deepening the understanding and preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation. The retreat is led by a Director that we have hired who will be assisted by our year round Lumen Christi missionaries. We ask that parishes send adults with their youth to assist with small groups. (one adult for every 5 youth).

Dates & Locations

Who Can Come

This retreat is for any youth preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation.  The retreat will be filled on a first come basis and we can take 150 youth.

Cost & Registration

Any parish that is sending youth is required to send a Safe Environment certified adult with them to assist with small groups. One adult for every 5 youth (ex.  sending 2 youth = 1 adult,  7 youth = 2 adults, etc.) The parish is responsible for ensuring all adults have been certified in the latest Safe Environment training according to the expectations laid out by the Diocese.  Click below for the registration form.  Please turn in these forms to Grace at by November 5th.
