At Delone Catholic, our retreats give our students the opportunity to encounter the Lord together with their peers. The retreats are planned to meet the needs of the specific group, meeting them where they are as they progress through high school and grow in their individual relationships with God. Students begin freshmen year focusing on unity and the specific gifts and talents of each individual. Sophomore year confronts the popular opinions of our culture and presents students with the truth found in the Catholic faith. During their junior year, students are given the chance to live out their faith in a very tangible way by ministering to the needs of people in our community through works of charity. Finally, senior year allows the students to look forward to the future and gives them the tools they need to discern God’s call. These annual retreats are graduation requirements as an integral part of our Catholic identity.
*Please note: These retreats are graduation requirements. If a student misses their retreat date, a letter will be sent home detailing the other wonderful opportunities to make it up on his or her own time. Should a student choose not to act appropriately, it is at the discretion of the chaperones and/or retreat leaders to remove the student from the activity to work on another assignment. The retreat will then need to be made up on the student's own time and at his or her own expense. We do not anticipate any problems with our students and are holding them in prayer as they prepare for their encounters with God.
