NEW! Online Confirmation Retreat


 

 

Covid-19 restrictions have posed complications for youth ministry like never before. In response, we have created a Confirmation video series to help support the needs of parishes seeking to provide engaging Catholic resources for their students. The series includes questions to guide small group discussions. 

“The videos were super. The cliff jump, crushed camper and your heartfelt messages are just right for these students. The reflection notes were also just right.” - Betsy Fitzsimons, DRE, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, Hamden, CT

Theology of the Body Retreat

For Teens


This retreat makes the revolutionary teaching of St. John Paul the Great accessible and relatable for teens. Delve into the mystery of who we are and what we are made for. Building on the wisdom of JPII Sam and is wife, Kristin challenge the lies of our culture with the undeniable truth of our dignity as sons and daughters of God.
 

Youth Minister’s Retreat


Build up your ministry staff with an event designed for their needs. Give them time together to learn, laugh, grow, and be refreshed.
 

Confirmation Retreat


Sam blends teaching with games, music, and stories to meet teens where they are and guide them to the Truth. Young people leave with a renewed appreciation of their deepest identity as beloved sons and daughters of God the Father. God has a plan for all of His children. Sam helps them see beyond who the world tells them to be so that they can become the people our world desperately needs them to be. This retreat answers the basic and life changing questions of:
 
Who am I?  Why am I here?  What is the point of my life?  What happens when I die? Does God really exist?  What about Jesus?  Are all religions the same?  Why be Catholic?

 

Faith Night for Teens and Parents


Sam reaches both teens and parents through an entertaining and engaging retreat that includes games, teaching, and inspiring stories from saints and other heroes. Build up parents in their role as the primary educators of their children and inspire whole families to come alive in their faith.

Confirmation Follow-Up Retreat


For Confirmation students who have been on retreat with Sam already, this follow-up retreat reminds, refreshes, and reignites.
