Kirkwood ain’t just for the summer 🙂

Most retreat participants spend a lot of time in the cozy Stroup House

We have a number of fun events planned between now and the end of the year–and we want you to be here for them!

Confirmation Retreat

As your youth get close to confirmation, join us in April to cap off a transformative year of education and faith formation at Kirkwood. We’ll “crowdsource” the event with attendee leadership to make sure the weekend meshes well with your own confirmation program. Plus, we provide delicious food, fun activities, and our great facilities.

When: Friday April 27 at 8pm-Sunday April 29 at 9am
Where: Kirkwood!
Who: Confirmation-aged youth and their chaperones
Cost: $80 for Youth, $60 for Adults
What you get: A great weekend away at Kirkwood, with time to reflect, learn, grow, and play. Let us help you put the exclamation point on your confirmation year.
Please RSVP by the Monday after Easter Monday (April 8th).
