Sophomore Retreat

Sophomores are given the opportunity to participate in an overnight retreat. This is an optional program which includes time for prayer, reflection, and discernment in the call to faith and service. This is an introduction to service, a foundational principle of the vision of the Xaverian Brothers which provides an opportunity to reach out to the poor and marginalized of our society.

This retreat is held in partnership with CrossRoads Ministry. This is an urban retreat experience with an intentional focus on outreach to the margins, prayer, service and bridging Louisville communities for justice. Students who attend this retreat will receive 6 hours of direct service. For more information on the CrossRoads Ministry visit their website.
