Fanning the Flame
"Fanning the Flame" is a day of retreat dedicated to the discernment of spiritual gifts. This dual-track retreat is great for youth preparing for Confirmation, their parents and sponsors, or just anyone looking to further understand the way in which God is calling them to work for the Kingdom of God.
The day begins at 9am and ends at 4pm, after Mass together at 3. This year, we will be at the Y Camp in Boone, located at 1192 166th Dr, Boone, IA 50036.
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 the 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.
