Dear Parents_


									February 2008

Dear Parents,

       Saint Mary Cathedral’s Confirmation retreat is from March 14-16th 2008 at Cedarbrake Retreat
and Renewal Center in Belton, Texas. Candidates will meet at Saint Mary’s at 5 p.m. on Friday and will
be taken from the Cathedral to the retreat site. Candidates will return to the Cathedral on Sunday at 1:30

        The Confirmation retreat is being staffed by 10 young adults from Saint Mary’s Youth Ministry
Core team. There will be a series of five talks followed by small group discussion. The retreat will also
include time for the sacrament of Reconciliation, Sunday mass, Eucharistic Adoration, personal
reflection, fellowship and fun. A more detailed schedule of the retreat is attached to this letter along with
information on what the Candidates should and should not bring to the retreat.

       The cost of the retreat is $75.00 and checks should be made payable to Saint Mary Cathedral.
This fee covers the cost of transportation, lodging, food, and T-Shirt. If there is any financial difficulty
with paying for the cost of the retreat, please inform the parish so that accommodations can be made.
Permission forms and money are due no later than Sunday, March 2nd.

        As discussed at the parent meeting last November, all Confirmation candidates are required to
attend this retreat and all other high school youth are encouraged to attend. Confirmation Candidates
who are unable to assist must make plans to attend a Confirmation retreat at another parish. If such is
the case, students must present to Saint Mary’s a letter stating they have attended a Confirmation retreat
at another parish.

       Saint Mary’s young adult team has been prayerfully preparing for your son or daughters’ retreat
and we are looking forward in continuing to prepare your son or daughter for the sacrament of
Confirmation. Should you have any further questions, you may contact: Mariangela Cavazos at 476-
4801 or you email me at

In Christ,

Mariangela Cavazos
Director of Christian Faith Formation
