Alma Rubio, a TIM (Teen in Ministry) from Holy Angels in Dyersburg, TN, was one of two speakers at the annual diocesan confirmation retreat on Feb. 27th. Nineteen youth from seven parishes participated in the retreat.

The annual Diocesan Confirmation Retreat was held on Saturday, Feb. 27 at Our Lady Queen of Peace Retreat Center. The retreat is for parishes which do not have enough young people preparing for confirmation to have their own retreat. Nineteen young people from seven parishes throughout the diocese participated in the retreat, coordinated through the diocesan Office of Youth Ministries. Eight TIM’s  Teens in Ministry served as table leaders. The retreat began with a liturgy celebrated by Fr. Damian Krakowski, associate pastor of St. Mary’s Church in Jackson. Participants heard talks from two TIM’s on how a particular gift of the Holy Spirit helped them through a difficult situation. They also spent some time learning different ways to pray, including using symbols, music, shared prayer, traditional prayers, creative prayer, quiet prayer and praying stories of faith through storytelling. Confirmations will begin on April 4 and end on May 5. Please keep all those preparing to receive the sacrament of Confirmation in your prayers.
