O’Dowd Campus Ministry Retreats are chances for students to step away from everyday school life and reflect on the deeper things – like faith, relationships, struggles and joys, where you are, where you’ve been and where you are going. O’Dowd retreats are invitations to transformative experiences where students can encounter God, others, and themselves in profound ways. There is one retreat model offered for each grade with the junior Kairos as the core experience.
New Retreat Lottery Process
With the intent to be more equitable, retreat registration will be offered to students through a lottery rather than a first come first serve registration process. Sign ups for the lottery will be open for several weeks until the lottery deadline. From the pool of students in the lottery, names will be randomly selected and placed on retreat. Those who are not placed on a retreat will automatically be placed on a waiting list.
