One of Campus Ministry's most significant undertakings is offering spiritual retreats and encounters encouraging Christian morality, unity, and self-worth to each member of our student body. These events are led by members of the faculty who serve as mentors and approximately thirty trained student leaders. During these off-campus experiences, students address questions of personal faith, build community, and have prayer experiences appropriate for their age range. Retreats and encounters provide a stepping stone to becoming spiritually informed, responsible leaders in our community. Activities include:
Seventh, eighth, and ninth graders have a one-day retreat at Comunidad de Ama, a Catholic facility in Brownsville, TX.
Juniors participate in a 3-day encounter which is based on an established Marist program and is consistent in its presentation each year. Encounter is conducted at Camp Capers in Waring, Texas, a Christian camping facility that offers a natural and peaceful setting that encourages prayer and reflection.
Senior retreat is also a 3-day experience and was most recently held at T Bar M, a Christian Camp located on Lake Travis in New Braunfels, Texas whose mission is to “present Jesus Christ and teach His ways through an exciting, enthusiastic, and encouraging camp experience.”
