Thursday, April 15 | 9 - 12 pm.
The themes for this year's retreats are as follows:
Experiencing Christ in High School
LOL! (Live Out Loud!)
Be Not Afraid!
Important: A reminder from the Student-Parent Handbook:
Each student at Elyria Catholic is required to participate in the retreat program. If a student does not participate in his/her scheduled retreat, it is the student's responsibility to make arrangements to attend another approved retreat at his/her own expense before the end of the school year. Failure to complete a retreat without alternate arrangements will result in a grade reduction to a D- for the student’s semester Theology grade and will prevent seniors from participating in Baccalaureate and/or Graduation.
