Gifts & Fruits of the Holy Spirit Retreat

Registration for the 2017 Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Spirit Retreat is now closed.

Though often overlooked, the Holy Spirit is essential in our Catholic faith. The Spirit, the vehicle of God’s love to us, offers us healing from sin and allows us to bear fruit as God’s children. As the Spirit prepares us to receive Christ, we find new life in the Eucharist which then helps us to witness Christ’s love to others. This retreat will explore all of the ways that the Holy Spirit helps us love as God loves.

Gifts & Fruits of the Holy Spirit is a retreat opportunity for youth preparing for confirmation or parishes looking for a Holy Spirit-focused retreat experience.*

The retreat will begin with check-in at 10 a.m. on Saturday and end with Mass at 1 p.m. on Sunday. Parents are welcome to attend Mass.

For more information, please contact the Office of Youth, Young Adult and Campus Ministry at (512) 949-2464 or

*This retreat is designed to be experienced by parish groups. We ask that parishes who wish to participate send both youth and the appropriate amount of EIM compliant chaperones.
