PEER RETREAT TEAM
The Retreat Team is a club that meets to prepare and execute retreats for both middle school and high school. A student run Board manages sub groups designed to develop different aspects of the retreats
RETREATS (grades 7-10)
Each grade level participates in a retreat as well as an all school retreat given before Easter. These retreats give the students the opportunity for a definite time spent away from their daily activities for the purpose of reconnecting with God and each other.
With all the retreats the students will go home with a “To-Go bag”. This will be filled with take home remembrances of the sessions along with a letter to Mom/Dad explaining their experiences.
The highlight retreat for the students is Kairos. This overnight, multi-day retreat allows the junior class to gather away from school to focus on the role of Christ in their lives and what that means as leaders of the Cardinal Newman student community. The retreat is planned and led by seniors who have experienced Kairos as juniors, and supported by faculty members who volunteer to spend the days with the class.
