A Confirmation Retreat - Register now!

Not your typical retreat! If you're between 5th and 12th grade, preparing to be, or have been confirmed in the Episcopal Church, and are curious how you can make a difference in the lives of others, you won't want to miss this fun overnight gathering! 

This is a chance to spend time with Bishop Singh, and discover ways of following Jesus building beloved community.

Why are we at the Glen H. Curtiss Museum? Mr. Curtiss was born right in Hammondsport, and became an inventor and entrepeneur in the transportation industry. The museum is the perfect backdrop to learn how you too, can make a difference with the lives of others in this world of ours!

Doors open at 4:30pm Friday at the Curtiss Museum in Hammondsport. We will be offering bus transportation to the event on Friday. Bus leaves Diocesan Offices located at St. Peter's Church, Henrietta promptly at 4pm. The bus will make another pick up along the way for those south of Monroe County, if needed. Location TBD. No bus service on Saturday. All attendees will need to be picked from the museum on Saturday after the conclusion of Eucharist and banquet.

Friday kick's off with pizza, popcorn, a movie, and a conversation. 

Bring your overnight essentials including a sleeping bag and pillow for the coolest night ever, because the sleeping accommodations are right in the Curtis H. Glenn Museum, among the aircraft, motorcycles and automobiles on display!

Saturday's program will include a variety of fun activities including a scavenger hunt. The day will conclude with a banquet dinner and Eucharist. Your registration includes two dinner guests to join you!
