About the event

PRIVATE EVENT - Not Open to the Public

Dear parents,

This year’s Confirmation retreat is scheduled for September 22, 2024 at Russia Local school located at 100 School St. Russia, 45363. This retreat is for students and parents! Registration begins at 12:30 pm with the retreat beginning at 1:00 pm and ending at 4:00 pm. Please arrive no later than 12:45 for registration. This retreat will be led by Catholic author and speaker Dr. John Wood, who is an eye doctor, and the theme this year will be “Sanctifeyed.” We are confident it will be a great experience for you!  While it is required for at least one parent to attend with your child, we recommend that both parents attend.

There is one portion of the retreat in which John will provide a specific presentation just for the parents. (The students will be in another room for adoration during this time).  John Wood has spoken all over the country and his book, “Ordinary Lives, Extraordinary Mission,” has sold over a quarter million copies. New York Times Bestselling author Matthew Kelly has said, “I believe John is one of the great emerging Catholic voices of our time. John Wood has a passion that is contagious…read this book and make an effort to hear him speak!” This is NOT an informational meeting, this is an inspiring talk that you DON’T WANT TO MISS! We promise it will be worth your time and help you prepare with your son or daughter for this important sacrament. You will also receive a bag of materials worth over $200!

IMPORTANT ACTION:  To help make this retreat a memorable experience, we ask you to write a short care letter of encouragement to your son/daughter and invite their Confirmation sponsor to do so also. These letters will be distributed and read during Adoration time. It is important that each student receives at least one letter. 

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you on September 22!
