“The Holy Family Mission Retreat has been a major success in our Parish Schools. The retreat touches many issues facing young people at all stages of their lives in an enlightening way, including self-image, self-worth and where God, Faith and making Confirmation fits into that. The team are great at connecting with the students, taking them on a journey through the day, where they experience or think about God in a way they have never done before.”

Elaine Campbell, Faith Coordinator, St Etchen’s School & Kinnegad Parish, Co. Westmeath
