Boston Retreats

Following the model of Pope Francis, who inspires us to live out our Catholic faith with joy, CYFM creates retreat experiences designed to meet the youth wherever they are and to call them forward in their journeys of faith.  Each retreat includes witness talks, presentations, large and small group discussions, activities, and prayer services.  

CYFM’s retreat team offers:

     ·    a high leader to retreatant ratio;

     ·    exceptionally well crafted retreats;

     ·    a team that includes friars and well trained, faith filled young adult volunteers;

     ·    solid Catholic teaching presented in engaging ways

For parishes we offer Confirmation retreats, designed to help confirmandi prepare to receive the sacrament of Confirmation. We have two different Confirmation retreat options, Why Be Confirmed and Discipleship, so Directors/Coordinators can choose which best complements their program and responds to the needs of their students. Why Be Confirmed helps each retreatant examine their relationship with God and attitude toward Confirmation, as well as reflecting on how they can grow in this aspect of their life. Discipleship allows retreatants to reflect on the call to be a disciple of Christ in the sacrament of Confirmation. To learn more about each of these options, click here

For schools we offer class retreats for grades 5-12. Each is designed to strengthen the faith of the participants, inviting them to reflect on their relationship with God and journey in faith. Our elementary school retreat themes include Friends with Jesus and Jesus and the Gospels. Our high school class retreats include What Makes Me Catholic?, a sophomore retreat focused on Catholic identity, and Where is God Leading Me?, a senior retreat which focuses on God’s role in each of our lives.
