The retreat program exists to bring students into deeper relationship with Christ and each other through prayer, faith sharing, and the sacraments. Each retreat is an essential part of students’ formation as Christians and in the four Falcon Talons. All Bishop Fenwick students are required to attend all four retreats as part of their graduation requirements.
Freshmen attend a one-day retreat focused on the Falcon Talons of faith, integrity, compassion, and service. This is an opportunity for the freshmen to build community as a class and explore how they are called to live their faith.
Sophomores make a one-day retreat led by NET Ministries focused on what it means to have true friendships. Students continue to develop their understanding of the Falcon Talons as they interact in both small and large group activities.
Juniors attend a two-day, one-night retreat at the Bergamo Center in Dayton. Through witness talks given by the retreat team, small group reflections, and guided prayer experiences students deepen their relationships with one another and God.
Seniors attend a four-day, three-night Kairos Retreat at the Jesuit Spiritual Center in Milford. Students reflect on the Paschal mystery and how their lives mirror the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Seniors explore and deepen their relationships with one with God, self, and others.
