Retreat Team

St. Gabriel the Archangel Retreat Team is a community dedicated to promoting a deeper faith in Jesus with special direction toward confirmation candidates.  We do this through sharing story, personal enrichment, prayer, and the presentation of a prayerful enjoyable retreat experience.  We strive to be a community of love, compassion, and mutual support.

Expectations / Guidelines

We are called

  • to be present at Mass every week-end
  • to be present at all meetings
  • to be a people of faith, practicing our faith in community, at home, and at school.

We are asked

  • to be respectful of one another
  • to listen to each other’s stories with attention
  • to provide encouragement and support
  • to be part of the whole group rather than part of small cliques
  • to put effort into writing stories

On retreat, our role is

  • to welcome the candidates as they arrive and to show them their rooms
  • to actively participate in the retreat
  • to sit among the candidates rather than in the same little groups
  • to respect anyone who is speaking by giving them full attention
