Retreats/Kairos

But Jesus would withdraw to deserted places to pray.
—Luke 5:16

Come to me all you who labor... and I will give you rest.
—Matthew 11:28

Following the model of Jesus we take time out of the busyness of the school year to withdraw and pray through our retreat programs. We offer multiple retreats throughout the year including a faculty/staff retreat, a mandatory all-school retreat, voluntary grade-level retreats, and Kairos retreats.

All-School Retreat: Sentinel Summit

An All-School Retreat called the Sentinel Summit is held during Catholic Schools Week. This retreat has the year’s assigned SCP Charism from St. Elizabeth Ann Seton's life (one of Courage, Determination, Faith, or Love) as a theme, offering multiple speakers and opportunities for students to grow closer to God. If a student misses this retreat, they will be given a make-up assignment.

Kairos Retreat

The Kairos Retreat is the pinnacle retreat experience for our students. Evangelistic in nature, the Kairos Retreat aims at awakening Christ within each student’s life. Held over four days, the Kairos Retreat is based on the Cursillo model, incorporating thematic talks, small group discussions, private reflections, prayers, meditations, Reconciliation, Adoration, and Mass. Kairos is student-led by a team of seniors who have previously attended Kairos and gone through formation. Faculty, as well as Seton alumni, also help to lead these retreats.
