Our annual Confirmation Retreat was April 22/23. Twenty-five 9th graders, along with a handful of their Acts 29 peer ministers and the youth ministry staff, retreated themselves up to YMCA Camp Ihduhapi in Loretto (MN). Please keep our Confirmation candidates in your prayers as they prepare to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation on May 7th at the Basilica. Also, all are invited to join in the blessing for them at the Rite of Sending on May 7th at our 10:30am Mass.
