The students got so much from the Confirmation Retreat. They were given space to reflect, the day was engaging and fun and yet had a great impact. We have recommended Claire to the neighbouring parishes.

The retreat was a true highlight for each and every child that went. It will be one of the events that they look back on with great and fond memories. Once again, it brought religion and their faith to life and allowed them to discuss this in a reflective way.

Every experience has been excellent with Catholic School Retreats. The facilitator gave a beautiful presentation and was very accommodating. I would be delighted to recommend Catholic School Retreats after a very positive experience.

Thaitin an lá go mór liom mar bhí an-spraoi agam. D’fhoghlaim mé go mbíonn Dia ann i gconaí dom, go mbíonn sé ag éisteacht liom agus gur féidir comhrá a bheith agam leis aon uair is maith liom. Bheinn ag iarradh dul ar lá spioradálta arís.

Keep It Lit taught me that God’s love is unconditional, that God talks to me even though I can’t hear him.

Today I learned how to connect with God. Before, this was a difficult task that I continually found difficult to perform. Now I feel like I can talk to God wherever needs be.

Me and my class today set off for our Superheroes Retreat Day. I really, really enjoyed it. I learnt that God loves me and that nobody is not loved. Jesus is a superhero and everybody is called to be a superhero. I learnt that God and everything we have and are talents and family all come from God.
