Campus Ministry offers a variety of spiritual retreats to help students deepen their relationship with God and each other. Rooted in our Catholic, Marianist traditions, Chaminade retreats promote a spirit of community that enables students to look beyond themselves and see the uniqueness and value of others as being created in God’s image. Retreats are offered at every grade level.
