Theme: Encounter

Have you encountered the living God? Have you experienced the love of Jesus? Have you felt the power of the Holy Spirit? This overnight retreat will give students the opportunity to encounter God, who is real and present in their lives. We journey with students while seeking answers to some of life’s most important questions: “Who is God?” and “Who am I?” There will be games, talks, music, reconciliation, adoration, mass, prayer, and a whole lot fun along the way.

We are offering a 1 Day retreat for freshman this year.  Space is limited to ensure the health and safety of our students. The cost is $35 which includes a t-shirt, sticker and lunch!   Reserve your spot quickly by click here:  Freshmen Encounter Retreat
