Enrichment programs to supplement sacramental preparation and religious education instruction.

Retreats and Virtual Programs

The Miraculous Medal Shrine offers virtual, onsite, and in-person retreats at our location for students preparing for the sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Communion and Confirmation, as well as religious education instruction for young adults.

Our Youth and Young Adult Ministry program has developed unique, online or in-person retreats to complement your school’s or organization’s sacramental/religious ​instruction.

Programs are specially tailored to complement your instruction and include exciting interactive presentations, a personal and spiritual journey with St. Catherine, virtual tours, and other fun group activities. We offer this programming virtually, in-person, or in a safe-environment classroom onsite at the Shrine.

It’s easy and affordable, and best of all—we do all the work.
