Retreats

Eight high school students lie in a circle on grass

St. Dominic’s retreat programming guides students on their journey through high school, enabling them to reflect and grow in their relationship with Christ at each stage of the high school experience.

Freshman

All freshmen participate in a one-day retreat on the St. Dominic campus. Students get to know their classmates better through team-building activities and explore the deeper meaning of the Four Pillars of St. Dominic: prayer, study, community and service.

Sophomore

All sophomores participate in a single-gender retreat on the St. Dominic campus, using Jesus and Mary as examples to emulate.

Junior

All juniors attend the three-day, student-led Kairos retreat, an off-campus retreat that is a highlight of many students’ time at St. Dominic. Kairos, meaning “God’s time,” is an opportunity for students to take time away from their day-to-day lives to explore their relationship with God and others.

Senior

Seniors may choose one of two options for their final St. Dominic retreat experience:

  • Overnight: In an off-campus overnight retreat, seniors have the opportunity to look back on their growth throughout high school. Students also contemplate future plans and ways to integrate faith in their lives as young adults.
  • Service retreat: The one-day service retreat is designed to get seniors out of their comfort zone and serve those in need in a tangible way. The retreat includes Mass and hands-on service experience at a local agency.

“Kairos changed the way I look at everyone in my grade. It helped me to realize that the way we treat each other really does make a difference in their lives. The retreat helped me to see the face of God in so many of my peers.”
