On the weekend of April 14 and 15, a retreat was held for young people who are preparing to receive the sacrament of Confirmation, belonging to the parish of St. Boniface.

This final preparation retreat was held at the Convent of San Antonio and San Julián de La Cabrera (Madrid). The link with this parish arose on the occasion of the celebration of the so-called Lights in the City two years ago. Lights in the city is called the initiative of the archdiocese of Madrid, that takes place once a year,around the celebration of Consecrated Life, to give the opportunity for young people in Madrid to know the ecclesial realities of their environment in an environment of witness and closeness.

The general headquarters of missionaries belong to the Vicariate II of the archdiocese and generously the parish of Our Lady of Covadonga offers us its rooms to make our charism known. The young people of San Bonifacio visited us two years ago and were interested in our activities with young people through Idente Youth, since then they have participated actively and with greater intensity in the toy campaign and the Ateneo de Reyes Magos.

As they approach the date of the celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation, they have requested that the Idente missionaries prepare a retreat for them to close in an intense way the formation to receive the sacrament.

The 20 young attendees enjoyed an intimate atmosphere, accompanied by their responsible catechist, and participating actively in each moment.
