Theme: Prodigal

Sometimes we stray and turn our back on God. Yet our Father in Heaven forgives us and waits patiently for our return. The sophomore retreat takes students into a deeper realization of God’s unrelenting love and mercy.

Students will hear great talks, student testimonies, participate in small groups, prayer, adoration, reconciliation and Mass. They will also experience team building activities such as rope courses, hiking, and zip lining.

Sophomore Retreat Date(s):

September 4 - 6, 2019

The retreat is held at The Irvine Ranch Retreat Center. Forms are due one month prior to retreat dates, but remember don't wait until the due date. These retreats will fill up fast. We take the first 40 students and then start a wait list.
