Creating opportunities for spiritual growth.
Retreats are a beloved tradition at Holy Child – a chance to step away from the ordinary pace of the school year, to spend time in community, to pray, reflect, and develop a personal response to God’s love.
COMMUNITY BEYOND THE CAMPUS
All members of our Holy Child community participate in retreats each year. Each class has a retreat, intentionally planned for that age and stage of their development and relationship with God and others. Faculty and staff also participate in an annual retreat, and alumnae are invited to a morning of reflection to take this time away to pause and pray. These are favorite times of the year for our students and opportunities we find that they look forward to.
As Holy Child values these retreat days and generously gives students these days off, the same is true for Holy Child faculty and staff. An annual spiritual retreat provides a day to put aside other responsibilities and to pray, learn, and celebrate community.
Recent retreat guest speakers and Mass celebrants have included Fr. Jim Greenfield, OSFS and Msgr. John Enzler of Catholic Charities DC.
