Quest Retreat

Quest is a 24-hour, overnight retreat away from school and home to meet new people and talk about important life and faith issues. Quest is designed to help freshman and sophomores discover more about themselves, others and God. The retreat is led by sophomores under the direction of a Campus Minister. Boys and girls sleep on separate floors at Cabrini Retreat Center. All meals are included. Missing school for Quest is considered an excused absence. Students will have one school day to make up any class work missed. Saint Viator coaches and club moderators have been instructed to allow students to miss sports and other activities to attend Quest without repercussions.
