Retreats are a time away from the busyness of life to focus on oneself, others, and God. Knowing how crucial it is to take a step back and reflect on our lives, each student makes a retreat once a year with their grade to incorporate their faith into their life.
At Conwell-Egan Catholic High School, we find it essential for each class to have a retreat day throughout the school year. These says are mandatory for each student. If a senior or junior student misses the retreat, they will not be able to participate in Senior or Junior prom until they meet the requirement. If first- and second-year students miss the retreat, they will not be able to participate in the spring fling. If a student misses thier retreat they will have the option to make it up. There are no excuses why a student cannot participate in these retreats. Lastly, Seniors are available to take part in Kairos XXXIV & XXXV. If they sign up for Kairos, these students will be excused from the Senior Retreat on October 12. If a junior signs up for the second Kairos in March in order to be a leader, they will be excused from the Junior Retreat on April 5. Lastly, if any student participates in the NCYC retreat on November 19th, you are also excused from your specific retreat day.
