Kairos Retreat

Kairos is a 3.5-day retreat led by seniors and Campus Ministers where the value of Christian faith is lived and celebrated in community. The purpose of this popular retreat is to help students identify and celebrate where God’s love is active in their lives. Boys and girls sleep on separate floors at Cabrini Retreat Center. All meals are included. Missing school for Kairos is considered an excused absence. Students will have three school days to make up any classwork missed. Saint Viator coaches and club moderators have been instructed to allow students to miss sports and other activities to attend Kairos with no negative repercussions.
