Senior Retreats

Three Senior Retreats are offered in the school year. Each retreat offers a unique opportunity to engage your faith and spiritual development while in communion with nature.


Wilderness Retreat - Explores God's invisible attributes and presence through the beauty of nature’s woodlands, waterfalls, and mountain streams. You will spend three days and two nights camping and discovering your connectedness to God’s creation. Seniors will be required to apply for acceptance and attend a mandatory meeting to prepare for the experience.

PlowShares Retreat - This retreat acknowledges Pope Francis’ call in Laudato Si for us to recognize our need to care for the environment. Students and Adults who attend this retreat will work with the plants and animals at PlowShare’s farm and deepen our sacred connection between humanity and our environment.

Christian Awakening Retreat - For those seniors who have yet to attend a Christian Awakening Retreat, we encourage you to consider attending the Christian Awakening Retreat. While attending the Christian Awakening Retreat is not a requirement for one of the Senior Retreats, both the Wilderness and PlowShares Retreats are built from concepts established on the Christian Awakening Retreat.

Please remember that you may not go on two retreats during the same semester.
