Every student on campus attends a retreat once a year. Each retreat varies in content, but always includes Mass, speakers, small group talks, and other activities centered around spiritual themes or essential life topics.
The Freshmen Retreat is the day before school begins and part of Freshmen Orientation. Juniors and Seniors on the Campus Ministry Team lead the retreat.
The Sophomore and Junior retreats typically feature outside guest speakers or visiting retreat teams, such as NET Ministries (based in Minnesota).
The Senior Retreat is focused on spiritual life after graduation, and keeping the faith in college — sometimes featuring outside speakers and sometimes staff presentations.
