The Spiritus retreat is held at the Bellarmine Jesuit Retreat House in Barrington. It is offered to our 2nd year Confirmation candidates each year, this retreat is required for all 2nd year candidates.
Retreats are designed to provide an atmosphere and environment for adolescents that are conducive to the kind of reflection and self-examination that can result in movement toward a deeper relationship with Christ. Spiritus is a 8-hour retreat experience that focuses greatly on the role of the Holy Spirit in our lives. This time away from one’s busy schedule is an excellent opportunity to reflect on how we welcome God into our lives. With the leadership of their peers and select adult advisors, retreatants are challenged to examine their relationships with Jesus, others, and ourselves. It focuses on helping participants to ask and live the questions of our Roman Catholic Faith.
Spiritus is a 8-hour retreat held on Sundays; from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Retreats are typically scheduled once in late January, and once in late February. Adults should attend one two-hour briefing meeting prior to the retreat for training and explanation of their role during the weekend.
Please note that all adult volunteers who are working with children are required to fulfill all Protecting God’s Children components including attending a safe environment program (VIRTUS).
