SI's retreat programs provide students with sacred time and space to encounter themselves, their classmates, and God in a context of love.
Frosh Retreat is a one day retreat where first-year students will spend time at St. Anthony’s Foundation, learning and being present to the community there. This retreat consists of a service experience at St. Anthony’s followed by retreat activities at SI. Recognizing our partnership with parents in the education and formation of our students, the retreat includes a component to facilitate interaction among parents and students on the evening of the retreat. It will include reflection, dinner, and prayer. Our expectation is that at least one parent (or an adult who is a close friend or family member) will be with us at St. Ignatius the evening of the retreat.
Frosh will be assigned a retreat date based on their Religious Studies class. Each retreat group is approximately 18-20 students. Permissions slips and more information will be distributed the week before each retreat in religious studies classes.

Sophomore Retreat is a two-day, overnight retreat. Sophomores will leave from SI on a bus and spend two days at San Damiano Retreat Center. Soph Retreat will focus on building community with your peers and finding time to pause and reflect. This is a mandatory retreat for SI students and a graduation requirement.
There will be 10 different sophomore retreats throughout the year and sophomores will be assigned a retreat date based on availability. All sophomores must sign up for the retreat by September 1 on Canvas.

A highlight of the SI experience for many students, Kairos retreats are offered to the entire senior class. There is also an opportunity for rising seniors to attend a Kairos retreat the summer before their final year at SI.
Over three days, participants are led by adults and fellow students who have attended a previous Kairos retreat to open themselves to God's love and the love of their family and friends.
