Students of each grade level have an opportunity to take time away from their busy school life to explore their spirituality, self, and relationships with God and others. All students, regardless of faith background, are strongly encouraged to attend a retreat each year while at SFHS.
Students may download the permission form and submit them at anytime for the retreats however each retreat has limited space so the earlier one signs up the better chance they have of getting their first choice. Students attending optional retreats are encouraged to carefully select their retreat dates by taking into consideration their academic and extra-curricular schedules.
Retreat attendance is not considered an absence. Missed school work is modified or excused for students who are on retreat. A fee does apply for most retreats, although SFHS subsidizes the expense. Financial aid is available.
Please join us the evening of Friday, August 11th for our Freshman Family Mass and Overnight Retreat. All incoming freshmen and their families are invited to celebrate Mass, meet fellow classmates, and Big Sisters, and kickoff our retreat theme, “Oh the Places You’ll Go.” Please arrive at 4:45 pm for parents and students to check-in by the CLC. Following Mass, families will say their goodbyes as the Class of 2021 gathers for dinner and a fun-filled evening of games, music, and information sessions on what it means to be a Troubie.
Throughout the year St. Francis offers various retreats and activities for parents to get involved. In addition to the annual Mother-Daughter Retreat, and Father-Daughter Spirit Day, we have the newly added Parent Retreat for just Parents. We hope our parents will take advantage of our retreats to bond with their daughters as well as other parents.
