Retreat Programs

Retreats offer our students a moment to step aside from the constant movement of the everyday and to take a moment to pause, enjoy and breathe. So often, our hearts and minds are consumed by the happenings of the past or concerns for the future, that we miss the beauty, insight and grace of the present moment. Our retreat program offers an opportunity either as a one-day, over-night or 3-night experience for La Reina students to connect more fully with themselves, their community and their God. Each retreat offers times for community building and fun, personal reflection and prayer, and creative expression. Each retreat is also prepared and led by a team of peer leaders who meet for several weeks prior to the retreat to design a unique and meaningful experience for the class they are preparing to serve. Our greatest hope is that young women will emerge as strong, confident, reflective and empathetic leaders who through the use of their own gifts will ultimately glorify God by creating a better world.

Freshman Retreat

The Freshman Retreats concentrate on the theme of new beginnings and friendship as the students begin high school. The theme of this retreat emphasizes the importance of nurturing their relationship with God and the gift of friendship with their fellow classmates. The day offers opportunities for class bonding and personal reflection.

Sophomore Retreat

The Sophomore Retreat is a one-day retreat that invites students to reflect on their individual gifts and how they can use them in service to the wider community.

Junior Retreat

The Junior Retreat is an overnight experience that invites students to examine and assess their lives and their understanding of God’s call to them. It is a retreat of personal renewal and of growth as a faith community with their classmates while enjoying a beautiful outdoor setting.

Senior KAIROS Retreat

The Senior Retreat, KAIROS, is a four day retreat that students may choose to attend either in the fall or the spring. Students will consider what God has gifted them to do in life and invites them to accept themselves as loved unconditionally by God.  “KAIROS” is a Greek word meaning “special time”. During this “special time” she will be looking carefully at herself, her relationship with others and her relationship with God.  KAIROS attempts to evoke in its participants a dynamic, personalized sense of God.  It is a beautiful gift for young people.  Our past retreatants say that they were so affected by the experience that it enhanced their relationships with family, friends, and even themselves.
