For the past 40 years Roncalli High School has been offering its seniors an opportunity to attend the three and a half day Christian Awakening Retreat. Currently, the school offers six different senior retreats throughout the school year with close to 90% of the seniors attending one of the retreats. The retreat gives the seniors an opportunity to grow and improve their relationship with God, their family and their friends. It is cited by many RHS alumni as the most powerful three days of their lives. The Roncalli Parents’ Organization donates the proceeds from the annual Ash Wednesday Fish Fry to this most worthwhile program in an effort to assist students who financially might not be able to afford the cost of the senior retreat.
