For the past 9 years, Fiat Ventures has been providing our Retreat for our eighth grade Confirmation students. This dynamic team of presenters motivates the group with fun games, personal testimonials, interactive music, video clips and discussion. Guided by the team, the most powerful segment of the day has consistently been the time spent at Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Feedback from the students each year is overwhelmingly positive. The “Not Too Young” message is well received and the students go forth with an enthusiasm to live their faith and strengthen their relationship with God.

“It’s been my pleasure to have worked with the Fiat Ventures Team for the past five years.  The Confirmation retreat has just the right blend of learning, prayer and fun; it keeps the candidates engaged and helps prepare them not just for reception of the sacrament but also for making good moral choices as they move forward in life as Catholic Christians.  I look forward to their time with us again this year!

Our parish has brought Fiat Ventures in to lead our Confirmation retreats for the last 5 years or so. The young people who lead the retreats are exceptional - faith-filled, well trained and confident in their work. They are old enough to have control and yet young enough to appeal to the candidates. Their program includes Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament during Reconciliation; they get the kids involved in skits and songs that help the candidates see things from a different perspective and have fun at the same time; and they each have their own personal story to share. The time is very well organized and orchestrated. I think that Fiat Ventures offer a solid, uplifting, spiritual, thought-provoking and enjoyable day for our candidates.

“Fiat Ventures has been working with our middle school students for over 5 years now. We initially booked a retreat for grades 6-8, but because of the overwhelmingly positive response from both students and teachers, we increased the amount of retreats to include our fifth graders as well. The Fiat Venture Team is a group of young, dynamic, faith filled Catholics, who are able to connect and relate to students with ease. Their programs use powerful story telling, live music, interactive games, and an uplifting prayer service to support His message of faith, hope and love. We are grateful for the Fiat Venture Team!!!!”
