FAMILY CONFIRMATION RETREAT
Our Catholic Faith is a communal faith, not an individualistic endeavor. Support of the parish family, and the confirmand's personal family is a crucial aspect of good faith formation. With this in mind, beginning in the 2017 - 2018 Confirmation year, all participants in the OLDP Confirmation class along with their family (1 or both parents, and Sponsor) will engage in the Confirmation Day of Reflection.

The Day of Reflection is held every year at the Rosaryville Spirit Life Center in Pontchatoula, Louisiana. This year the Day of Reflection will be held on Saturday May 5, 2018 from 9a.m. to 5p.m. Details will be provided at the Family Confirmation Meeting.
