An annual tradition at St. Francis is our Mother/Daughter Retreat. This event invites all students, mothers, grandmothers to join us in a day and night retreat of reflection, prayer and renewal. During your time with us the Retreat Team will engage the group in conversation around a specific themes and topics. The hope is we will help each mother/daughter/grandmother pair be able to talk and open up to each other on a level that is more than just parent/child, but to build up the relationship to a new level.
Each year this retreat is a great mix of students from all grade levels. Bringing a different dynamic to the retreat that is much different than class retreats. Being able to talk, ask questions and pray together with women of all ages allows for a new perspective and understanding of faith.
Students can register to attend the West Coast Walk for Life with fellow classmates, faculty and staff of St. Francis High School. The group will travel by chartered bus to San Francisco, attend Mass and the Walk for Life and then enjoy some recreation time in the city before traveling back to Sacramento in the evening.
Students are accommodated on a first come, first served basis. Students should meet in the CLC no later than 3:15 in order to depart on time. Transportation to and from the Sacramento Food Bank Distribution Center is provided by SFHS staff using school vehicles. Students should inform Ms. Villanueva if they are being picked up at the food bank. Parents must pick up students by 7:30pm
