Retreats: An Encounter with Christ
Retreats provide us a time not to escape from life, but rather a time to delve into the very soul and mystery of it.
In the tradition of the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, every student at Strake Jesuit takes time during each school year to nurture his spiritual life by making a retreat. The retreat program is a required component of each student's formation, regardless of his religious affiliation, because it is integral to the holistic growth we offer each student and lies at the very heart of our goal of forming the whole person.
Notes for Students
Schedules: You must take into account your athletic and extracurricular schedules and your family's calendar when you register for a retreat.
Accountability: You will be subject to disciplinary consequences if you fail to register for your retreat by the deadline, if you miss your retreat without letting anyone know in advance, or if you attempt to change your retreat at the last minute, ie. within a week of departure. If you need to make a change, please contact Fr. Wegenka as soon as possible.
Communication: Take ownership of your spiritual formation and come to the PMC for help when you need it!
