Each year the upper grades (7th - 12th) go on a spiritual retreat. Usually this occurs during the first part of each school year. This is designed to bring about unity with the students and a special bond to begin their new school year together. The Spiritual Life Committee plans these special retreats. These retreats involve the students staying off-campus. There is always a particular subject that is emphasized during their time away together. The students always come back renewed in their faith and excited about their new school year together as a student body.
