Confirmation at St. John: A True Treasure

Over 200 people attended our annual Confirmation Retreat at Summit Lake Camp on January 26th-28th. We were blessed to have with us Fr. Patrick Mary, M.F.V.A., and over 12 additional priests and seminarians! Fr. Mark made his way out to the mountains of Emmitsburg, as well as Fr. Robert from St. Andrew’s in Waynesboro, PA. For over 15 years, the little parish has joined us for our retreat after their Confirmation Coordinator, Judy Clement, fervently sought a good retreat for her students. Here is a look into the amazing experience students had this weekend!
