The Youth Ministry Division of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles has partnered with ProjectYM and Ablaze Ministries to bring the young people of the Archdiocese and online confirmation retreat experience. We know that it is important to have a solid retreat experience during the Confirmation Preparation Process. Though we would prefer to take teens away for an in-person weekend retreat, we know that option is not always available – especially right now.
ProjectYM and Ablaze Ministries have worked with ministry leaders and Catholic speakers across the country to build an amazing, on-demand, virtual confirmation retreat experience…not as another avenue for catechesis, but rather as a chance to create an environment for conversion and to give young people opportunities for real world encounters with the Jesus who loves them. That’s what preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation is all about.
With all this in mind, we have partnered with them to bring this opportunity to your parish and make it more accessible and affordable.
Here is how it works:
- Parish Leader (Youth Minister/Confirmation Coordinator/PCL) will purchase student licenses and pay the administration fee from the Youth Ministry Division. There is no minimum or maximum amount to purchase. Click Here to Purchase
- Parish Leader will receive a link to sign up for a Parish Leader Account.
- A unique Student Registration Link (SRL) will be created for your Parish so that you can send that link out to your Confirmation students
- Confirmation students register using their Parish’ SRL link. Students can register themselves for Greater.
Students will have access to the online retreat experience for 45 days. The student account includes: The Four Week Retreat, The Two Day Retreat, over 5 hours of video content, 12 teaching lessons, 4 virtual prayer experiences, 24 daily reflection prompts, printable completion certificates.
As a Parish leader you will have access to all student retreat content, a Parish Leader roadmap for both the 2 day retreat and the Four Week Retreat, track all student progress, and Retreat Leaders Facebook group.
Cost: $15.00/ per participant (student) license + $15.00 Administration Fee (annual fee). (This is a one time fee per parish regardless of how many times you purchase student licenses)
