Retreats and Liturgical Celebrations

Retreats 

Each class has two retreat opportunities during the course of the year.  Freshmen, sophomores and juniors have one mandatory retreat with their entire class, as well as opportunities to sign up for smaller retreat experiences for as many as 50 students.

                Class Retreats:

  • Freshman class mini-retreat experience in the fall semester with Archdiocesan Youth Ministers and Made to Be, A Retreat on Prayer in the spring semester with the National Evangelization Team.
  • Sophomore spring retreat called Strength and Beauty challenges students to look at how the world influences the way we live our lives and how God calls us to true, abundant life with the National Evangelization Team.
  • Junior retreat is separated into young men and young women with a focus on one’s vocation.  It titled, God is Calling; How will You Answer?
  • Journey, our senior retreat is a few days before graduation.

An optional senior retreat is offered four times a year.  The additional senior opportunity is Kairos, a national program based on the Cursillo retreat program for adults. 

In addition, all students are encouraged to participate in various spiritual formation opportunities such as the National Catholic Youth Conference, Community 360, National March for Life, Campus Ministry Team Day Away and other programs.
