To nurture our students’ faith lives, all students attend a retreat specifically designed with them in mind.
The Freshmen Retreat allows our newest students to build a deeper, more personal relationship with Jesus, as well as build new friendships with classmates.
Service is the theme of our Sophomore Retreat. Students visit off-site organizations for part of the day, and then hear talks and do group faith-building activities the other part of the day.
Juniors leave Bishop DuBourg for three days to participate in a Kairos Retreat. Kairos, God’s time, is a retreat allowing juniors to get away from the distractions of everyday life, to take time for themselves, and to make time for God. Student and faculty leaders give personal witnesses and lead small groups, and participants grow both personally and in community with their classmates.
Fourth Day Retreat
As leaders in our school, seniors take part in a Fourth Day Retreat off campus, an extension of the Kairos Retreat. The retreat reminds seniors of their time spent with God on their junior retreat and how important that relationship with Jesus truly is, especially as graduation awaits.
