Freshmen Overnight Retreat
Saturday, August 26-Sunday, August 27, 2017


The theme of the retreat is “Friendship is being able to be yourself,” and the motto of the weekend is that “My life is a gift from my family, my friends, and my God; upon this I shall build.”
The retreat is led by a group of 160+ Seniors who have been trained as retreat leaders, and the Freshmen sleep over in the Jesuit gym.  This retreat occurs early in the school year because it is a significant opportunity for Freshmen to develop as a community of friends, to understand the traditions of Jesuit education, and to believe themselves to be a vital part of the Jesuit High School family.  Because the experience of the Freshmen Overnight Retreat is so important for new students, participation is mandatory for each Freshman.  Students are automatically signed up for the Retreat.

Please note:  There is a Parent Portion of the Retreat on Saturday morning, and we asked that parents R.S.V.P. to attend the Parent Portion of the Retreat by August 1.  If you’ve not yet responded, please read this important information and submit your response a.s.a.p. using the link on the page.
