For the fourth year in a row we will have students participate in our unique differentiated retreats that allow us to meet students where they are and walk them one step closer to Jesus. Read THIS blogpost for information on our second year.
In addition to the differentiated retreats, we have a freshman retreat in which the freshmen take over the school for a day filled with prayer, fun, senior witness talks and activities.
Beauty is for students interested in all forms of art (visual, literary, musical). Students will be able to express themselves through art, be immersed in artistic beauty, and hear other artists’ share about their work and lives.
Encounter is for students who are open to faith and are looking for a shared experience in Christian faith. It provides an opportunity to participate in experiential activities, hear witness accounts of encounters they’ve had with God, and partake in praise and worship with prayer time.
Equip is geared toward students that are very active in their Christian faith and discipleship with the Lord. Students went to the Cloisters on the Platte for a morning with adoration, conferences, confession, Mass, and silent prayer, and then an activity discussing sharing their faith with others.
Justice is for students who enjoy serving Christ in others. It consists of a mini-service trip/cultural immersion trip downtown, relational prayer time, and hearing people share their stories about manifesting God’s Justice on earth.
Power is for students who are interested in their faith and seeking to grow in relationship with God! Students will learn about the power of the Holy Spirit, have small group time, praise and worship music, Mass, confession, and fun time with other classmates. As much as possible those in discipleship groups will be placed with their leaders.
Radiant is for students who are open to faith. Students will participate in art, music, writing, and other forms of art, experiential activities and listen to adults witness to encounters they’ve had with God, and have some prayer time.
Senior retreat – Instead of attending Encounter or Virtue, any senior who is interested in sports and activities focusing on human formation in the virtues are invited to this day focused more on being with others in the senior class and some experiences they missed not having a freshman retreat. Students will participate in team-building activities and spend time with both small groups and the other seniors that select this option.
Virtue is geared towards students who are more active and interested in sports and being active. It focuses on team building activities and formation in human virtues.
