Christ Academy: Spring Confirmation Retreat 2023

Christ Academy’s tradition is made up of three important elements: confessional catechesis, liturgical worship and a fun life together. Every year CTSFW hosts two retreats for confirmation students, one in the fall and another in the spring. Each confirmation retreat focuses on a different topic. Over the last three years, we’ve looked at one of the six chief parts of Luther’s Small Catechism.

Check-in starts on Friday evening at the Welcome Center between 6 and 7 p.m. where groups pick up their dorm room keys. That same night, pizza will be served in the Student Commons at 7:30 p.m., followed by the first session at 8 p.m. The next day consists of catechetical sessions, a guest speaker and a fun evening event for the students. The retreat concludes on Sunday after church at historic St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in downtown Fort Wayne.

This invitation extends to any of the youth in your congregation who are preparing for first communion or confirmation. We do ask that an appropriate number of chaperones attend to oversee the students. The cost for the entire weekend is $110 per individual (whether catechumen or chaperone), which includes food, housing, classes, and fun. Payment can be made by calling the Seminary’s cashier, or by bringing a check to the retreat.
