Sophomore Retreat – Strength in Numbers: Authentic Friendship
Roncalli is proud to partner with NET ministries for this unique retreat experience. Our Sophomore retreat theme focuses on the student’s relationship with their classmates. True friends walk together through their weakness. Many friendships today are characterized by betrayal, gossip and scandal, but what if our friendships were instead marked by support no matter the circumstances? Roncalli’s Sophomore Retreat will explore the role of authentic friendship in our lives and its ability to empower us to greatness! For more information, please contact Katie Hibner.
Junior Retreat – True Grit: Authentic Masculinity;
Dignified: Authentic Femininity
Roncalli is proud to partner with NET ministries for this unique retreat experience. Our juniors will attend a combined retreat with separate breakout sessions for males and females mixed with opportunities to come together and understand their role as Christian men and women in the world. Junior Boys: What does it mean to be a man? Strength? Fame? Wealth? Masculinity means sacrifice. Fewer and fewer men are willing to respond to this difficult call. Do you have what it takes? This theme explores authentic masculinity in response to Christ’s example of laying down His life for others. Junior Girls: Say “yes” to God. Say “yes” to love. Mary turned away evil and welcomed Jesus in the world by saying “yes” to God’s plan for her life. God has an incredible plan for your life too. Will you say “yes”? This theme explores authentic femininity through imitating Our Blessed Mother, Mary. For more information, please contact Katie Hibner.
Senior Retreat – Christian Awakening
Since 1978, Roncalli has offered seniors the chance to participate in the Senior Christian Awakening Retreat. This retreat focuses on the student’s relationship with God, others, and his/her self. This is one of the most exciting retreats Roncalli has to offer. The Campus Ministry program collaborates with Life Academy to offer an adapted, one-day Senior Retreat for Life Academy students. Life Academy students should plan to attend the last day of the March retreat. For more information, please contact Katie Hibner.
