Retreats at Brebeuf Jesuit are designed to give students at each grade level opportunities to develop spiritually by recognizing God in the people and events of their lives.

This is one of the most direct ways we fulfill our mission of helping students see God in all things. A variety of exercises are used to bring students together and to help them reflect on their relationships with God, others, and themselves. Retreats provide the opportunity for quiet prayer time, peer leadership, music, student presentations, journal, recreation, small and large group discussions and sharing.

Retreat Opportunities at Brebeuf Jesuit

Retreat Leadership Application

Junior and senior students, you are invited to apply to be a retreat leader! Leading any retreat is both a privilege and a lot of work, but ultimately a ministry to showing the love of God to your classmates. Witness is the most important quality to servant leading retreats. Being able to articulate your friendship with God, however that looks in your tradition, and having a habitual prayer life or practices that help you grow in that friendship is important. 

Leadership responsibilities include mandatory training sessions and team meetings, proper decorum, preparation, writing and presenting a talk, and co-leading a small group.  

For Freshman Retreat students will miss one day of school, two days for Sophomore Retreat, and three days for Kairos.

Seniors may lead both Freshman Retreat, and one overnight retreat. In fact, we encourage it so we can get to know you and you have retreat experience before we select you for an overnight retreat. Juniors are only allowed to lead Freshman Retreat.

If chosen, you will be invited by a member of the Campus Ministry Staff and receive more information about formation and retreat meetings.

  • Brebeuf Jesuit holds the right to withdraw an invitation to lead a retreat if disciplinary, attendance, or academic issues arise.
