From Religious Director Jenny Black Bear:
"We had a busy weekend! We had our Confirmation retreat which started on Saturday and ended on Sunday. We have four Candidates, three youth and one adult. We had talks about why we are here, the depth of Gods love, reconciliation/repentance, and Lakota Catholic and proud. They worked on their faith journey maps, they made guardian angel jars, completed a few lessons from the book and we prayed the rosary together. They exchanged guardian Angel jars. The purpose of these jars is so they can encourage one another by filling the jars with words of encouragement, prayers, or Bible verses for their fellow classmates. They will give to one another at their Confirmation. We had a lot of discussions! We had some yummy food and snacks to get us through the two days! We cooked them breakfast on Sunday. We attended Mass together. It was a great weekend of learning and fellowship! Thank you Fr. Jim Lafontaine for making time to come and have reconciliation available for our candidates. Thank you Ben for helping to make it another great retreat. The date for Confirmation will be on June 26, 2022."
