This retreat day is held at a local parish and is facilitated by a team from CYO Camp Rancho Framasa.

Tenth Grade – INSIGHTS Program – Catholic Charities of Louisville
An immersion experience designed to create an awareness of the problems of poverty and homelessness in America, and more specifically here in our local community. Students come face to face with the challenges that many of our neighbors encounter in trying to obtain housing, feeding a family on a budget, overcoming an addiction, or simply living in poverty. With a focus on our call to build a just society, students will learn about Catholic Social Teaching and how we are called to uphold the dignity of every human person. Students visit several social service agencies throughout the day.
Eleventh Grade – Full Filled: Overnight retreat at Mt. St. Francis
This overnight retreat experience held at Mt. St. Francis empowers the students to make tough decisions and to ask difficult questions in the midst of their faith walks with Christ. The focus is on emptying ourselves so that God can truly fill us. Experiences of prayer, witness talks, small group discussions, and community building are all a part of this retreat experience.
Twelfth Grade – Christian Awakening Senior Retreat
The Christian Awakening retreat experience has been around for decades. This four-day, three-night retreat helps high school seniors explore their relationship with themselves, with others, and most importantly with God. It calls them into deeper relationship with Christ, and helps them to ‘reawaken’ the faith that has been instilled in. Ultimately, the retreat calls them to action – to live out the life that God has called them to.
