Fanning the Flame Retreat

St. Thomas More Center, 6177 Panorama Rd, Panora, IA 50216

"Fanning the Flame" is a day of retreat dedicated to the discernment of spiritual gifts. This dual-track retreat is ideal for youth preparing for Confirmation, along with their parents and sponsors.

The day begins at 9am and ends at 5pm, after Mass together at 4.  The day will be held at the St. Thomas More Center: 6177 Panorama Rd, Panora, IA 50216

A day of Fanning the Flame teen track consists largely of small group sessions, with a couple large group sessions to guide them through a Spiritual Gifts Inventory, in order to help retreatants discern what sort of gifts the Holy Spirit is calling them to live into with & after Confirmation.  The adult track is similar, with more large group sessions and a focus not only on discerning Spiritual Gifts, but also how to foster this process of discernment in teens before & after they receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, thus equipping both adults and teens for lifelong discipleship.

Cost is $40 for teens, $20 for adults, and includes lunch.
