Student retreats are a wonderful opportunity for students to learn more about our faith, practice prayer, and grow in the community.
Each class has a retreat opportunity during the course of the year. In addition, all students are encouraged to participate in various spiritual formation opportunities such as:
- National Catholic Youth Conference (every other year)
- National March for Life in D. C.
- Topeka Rally for Life
- Saints Walk for Life
Belong- This is a one-day retreat, which focuses on the student’s relationship with God, themselves, and their community.
The retreat is held off campus at the Tucker Leadership Lab located on the campus of William Jewel College.
Juniors are divided into groups, serving at 10 locations across the KC metropolitan area.
Mrs. Sarah Ikenberry is the coordinator for the Kairos retreats. Kairos is an intense retreat experience for Seniors. It usually runs from Tuesday evening through Friday (or Monday evening through Thursday evening) and is conducted off campus. The retreat helps students empower themselves and attain better relationships with their family, friends and with God.
Kairos helps the retreatant relate his everyday experiences with God. The retreat is adapted from principles derived from the “Spiritual Exercises” of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Several retreats are offered each year. Typically we hold one/two during the summer just before school starts and several each semester for a total of five. Applications are required to sign up and the retreat is first come, first serve basis.
