SURF helping on Year 2 Retreat

What is the Confirmation 2 Retreat?

The Confirmation II Retreat is at time for all of our Confirmation II teens to spend time growing in their relationship with God, His Church, and one another as begin their final preparations to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.


Where is the Retreat Being Held?

This year the Confirmation II Retreat is being held at the Lazy W Ranch located off of the Ortega Highway at 23852 Hot Springs Canyon Road, San Juan Capistrano CA 92675. The facility phone number is (949) 728-0141.



We are asking for a $40 or less donation to help offset the cost of the retreat for the SURF members.  It costs over $120 per SURF member.  If you cannot afford, then please don’t worry about it!  Please bring it to SURF on Wednesday or with you to check in on Friday.  Checks made out to St. Edward the Confessor Catholic Church.
