Parents are called and graced to do more than raise their kids in faith. They are called to the Great Commission, to make their kids into disciples for the rest of their lives. We do our best. We love them, we pray for them, we set healthy boundaries, and actively form their character. What else can we do to make them into disciples of Jesus?

These workshops will equip parents with practical strategies to strengthen the discipleship environment of their home, lead their kids deeper in personal faith, and be even more intentional in apprenticing them as disciples.

All upperclassmen girls (grades 11 and 12) are invited to a morning retreat at St. Paul’s University Catholic Center on Thu., Aug.17 from 8:00 a.m. to around 1:15 p.m., including Noon Mass followed by lunch. A small breakfast will also be provided, and confessions will be available.


This retreat is intended as a chance to draw close to the Lord before the school year begins, as well as to begin the process of planning a similar retreat for the 9th and 10th grade girls at the end of the month.

Please RSVP using the Microsoft Form linked here. Any other questions can be sent to Katie Behrens ( Please see a separate email from 8/5 for more details.

Attached is a packing list. Please note the clothing policies:

  • Clothes must not be skin tight (i.e. one inch of stretch when pulled).
  • Sweatpants, jeans, t-shirts, and sweatshirts are allowed, once we get to Camp Gray: Students are NOT to change out of their uniforms until they arrive at Camp Gray.
  • The packing list mentions warm clothes, but it looks like it might be pretty warm out, so pack accordingly. Only one pair of closed toed shoes are necessary (the packing list says 2).



We currently have enough chaperones, but we are looking for a few more men! If you would, prayerfully consider attending.


Pick Up

Pick up will be at the normal end of school day time on Friday, the 22nd. Students do not need to be picked up early.


Please contact or if you have questions!

The Senior/Parent Retreat will take place on Thu., Aug. 31 at St. Thomas Aquinas starting with Mass at 7:30 a.m. Each senior should bring (at least) one parent. If a parent is unable to come, the retreat will still be worthwhile for the student to attend. The retreat will end around 12:00 Noon.
