Our retreat program emphasizes developing in our students a lived faith and an authentic relationship with God. The themes of each retreat vary based on grade level and retreat focus and address key topics in adolescent spiritual formation. Retreat topics include identity, God’s love, overcoming obstacles to God’s love, sexual morality, and living out one’s faith.
We offer days of reflection for each grade level that are day-long experiences led by our Peer Ministers that all students participate in. The freshman day of reflection focuses on identity, self-knowledge, community, and growing in faith while in high school. The sophomore day centers on issues of self-esteem, friendship, and authentic relationships. The junior day emphasizes justice and service and provides the students with a variety of opportunities to participate in works of justice. The senior day’s focus is living in faith beyond high school.
The junior retreat is an optional, overnight experience at Loyola Retreat House. This small-group retreat, offered twice annually, helps students to take a closer look at God’s involvement in their lives and how they can take more responsibility for their faith life.
The culmination of our retreat program is our four-day Kairos retreat, described in detail in the link below:
