Students meet in a small group at the 2017-2018 Freshman Retreat.

The Freshman Retreat will take place on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 2 – 8 p.m. at Jesuit. The afternoon retreat focuses on developing the pillar of “Loving” in the Profile of a Graduate at the Time of Graduation.

  • 1:30 – 1:55 p.m. in the Traditions Courtyard
  • 7:00 p.m. – Parents are invited to the retreat Mass in the Chapel of the North American Martyrs.
  • 8:00 p.m. – Parent’s not attending Mass should pick up their sons in the schoolyard.

Upon arrival, freshmen will receive their meeting room assignment in the courtyard. A pizza dinner will be provided during the evening. Dress for the night of reflection is casual but respectful: jeans or decent shorts, pullover shirt or presentable T-shirt (no T-shirts advertising liquor or bearing suggestive messages), and tennis shoes are all acceptable. Cell phones are not allowed at the Freshman Retreat. This night of reflection is a required Jesuit school function; thus all school rules of conduct apply. During pick-up, parents can enter the yard via the Banks Street entrance and line up in the same manner as a normal school day dismissal. Parents may park outside of the campus and walk to the courtyard to pick up their sons; however, students will not be allowed to leave the courtyard to meet their ride outside of school grounds.

Please contact Peter Flores, the director of campus ministry, at with any questions, or visit the Freshman Retreat page for more information.
