Campus Ministry is committed to advancing the spiritual lives of all JSerra students. One of the best ways that this is accomplished is through the dynamic, moving, and insanely fun retreats. Retreats are designed for each grade level and are optional.

What Retreats Offer

Over one-third of the student body attends one of our ten optional retreats each year, hosted at an off-campus site. Retreats include time for recreation via swimming pools, water slides, challenge courses, and game rooms, while taking advantage of natural surroundings conducive to personal reflection and an encounter with Christ through prayer, Mass, Confession, and praise and worship.

Retreat Themes

As a student progresses from freshman to senior year, the retreats grow steadily in their depth and various activities. Campus Ministers and other JSerra faculty prepare and work to make the themes relatable to students — leading games, singing songs, and giving personal witness to their own faith.

  • 9th - Anchored: Building a Relation with God
  • 10th - Prodigal: The Story of the Prodigal Son
  • 11th - Unstoppable: The Life of St. Paul
  • 12th - Kairos

Every student should put a retreat on their calendar, round up their friends to join them, and come find out why retreats are such a vital piece of the JSerra experience!

I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did! It was a great opportunity to make new friends, get away from the daily stresses of life, and spend time in prayer. I plan to attend annually.
