EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT
ATTENDING A SANCTIFEYED RETREAT!
1. WHY SHOULD YOUR PARISH ATTEND A CONFIRMATION SACRAMENTAL RETREAT?
This retreat is helping Families Fall in Love with the Sacraments. SanctifEYEd is a family retreat designed to help families rediscover the mission and beauty of the sacrament of Confirmation. Dr. John R. Wood, an eye doctor, uses analogies of the eye to help parents and students learn to “See the Light of Christ, and Be the light of Christ.” He also draws from his experience as a state champion runner featured in his book, “Where There is a Will There is a Way,” to inspire families to be saints!
Research is clear that parental lives are the most powerful religious curriculum of all. If parishes are not reaching parents as part of their sacramental prep, they are missing a huge opportunity. Parents are called to be primary educators, not parishes, but parents are difficult to reach. We want to help you reach them!
