Confirmation Retreat 2008

Bishop Daniel Jenky, C.S.C. of Peoria, IL, anoints a candidate for Confirmation.

This Sunday, we'll have our annual Confirmation Retreat. As in past years, we've invited young people from the National Evangelization Team (NET) to help facilitate the retreat. The members of NET are young adults who volunteer a full year to offer these retreats for young people preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation.

These young people are from all over the United States, and it's always been a pleasure to offer them hospitality here at St. Anselm. They are really on fire with love for the Lord, the Church, and for young people.

We'll celebrate the actual Sacrament of Confirmation on May 11 with Bishop John M. Smith coming to confer the sacrament this year.
