Retreat Program

Retreats are a time for students to step back from their busy schedules and reflect on God and self.  Prayer time, group activities, discussion, and personal prayer time are included in all retreats.

Each year at Marian, students participate in a class retreat. Each retreat has a different concentration that allows participants to further explore their relationship with God and others. The retreat themes are connected to the theology curriculum that the students are studying.  Therefore, the topics the students are exploring in the classroom become the basis for small group discussions and other activities during their retreats.

While the freshmen take part in two retreats on campus, the sophomores and juniors spend their retreat days at sites away from school. The seniors are offered an overnight retreat that begins to focus them on the transition of their faith life from high school to college.

Upperclass students also have additional occasions to participate in smaller and more contemplative retreats off campus.  The emphasis of these retreats is on individual spiritual reading, meditation, and prayer.
Each retreat opportunity helps to foster and develop students’ spiritual growth during the years they attend Marian.

Student Leadership Opportunities

Marian’s Campus Ministry Program empowers students to design and implement school liturgies, the student retreat program, and the school’s outreach projects.    

Student members of the Pastoral Team help in liturgy planning and lead the school in daily prayer. Members of the Marian community on this team serve as lectors, extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist, servers, cantors, and greeters at all school liturgies. 

Members of the Senior Retreat Team plan the seniors’ overnight retreat held annually in the fall.  Students also assist Campus Ministry with the two freshmen retreats. 
Project Care, a group of Marian students who coordinate the school’s Christian outreach projects throughout the year, plan student service and outreach opportunities around Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.
