Retreats

High School Retreat

Retreats offer a time of quiet reflection and opportunity to grow closer to God.  In this society, with all of the noise and distractions, it is difficult to find times of silence where the voice of God can be heard.  All high school students attend their class retreat. The retreat takes place during the day, usually at a retreat center.  Retreats are led by priests who offer Holy Mass, talks,Confession, rosary and quiet time.  

Additional weekend retreat opportunities during Advent and Lent, and monthly spiritual direction and talks, are offered through Miles Christi priests throughout the year for both boy and girl high school students (see links below)

Teacher Retreat

Teachers attend a one day retreat that is led by a priest.  In addition to spiritual talks and guidance, Holy Mass, Confession and rosary are provided.

Following the First Friday school Mass every month, the faculty meets with the presiding priest for spiritual guidance talks on different topics related to their vocation as teachers.

Teachers also attend a Holy Hour of Eucharistic Adoration together every First Friday.
