Retreats


As a Dominican school we value contemplation and sharing the fruits of this contemplation. Retreats are a wonderful opportunity for students to set aside time to get in touch with themselves, their peers, their values, and their God. Students attend at least one retreat each year during their time at Trinity. For more information on these retreats, see below:

Kairos:

Campus Ministry offers two optional three-day overnight Kairos retreats each year.  For many students, faculty and staff, KAIROS has provided an excellent opportunity to reflect on their relationship with God and to discover how that relationship shapes their lives.  Students can expect to hear from student and adult leaders about their faith journeys, connect with peers, and have meaningful opportunities for communal and individual prayer and reflection. Families and retreatants alike remark that it is “life-changing”!

Juniors and Seniors are eligible to participate in this rewarding experience that is a tradition at Trinity High School.  The retreat takes place at Loyola University Retreats and Ecology Campus in Woodstock, Illinois.

The 2018-2019 Kairos Retreats will take place December 13th-15th, 2018 (Seniors)

and April 10th-12th, 2019 (Juniors):

December sign up begins October 1st. Please review the sign up materials and return to Campus Ministry ASAP.

Those wishing to be considered for a scholarship should apply by September 24th for first priority.
