This retreat is exclusively for members of the senior class. The Magis Retreat is modeled after the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus.The retreat addresses the reality of our relationship with God in the person of Jesus Christ. It offers a challenge to reflect upon that relationship as it is now — as well as in the future — and calls the participant to prayer, reflection, community, and commitment.
The format of the weekend is based on the thematic sequence of the Spiritual Exercises in a meditation, prayer period, small group sharing format. The pace of the weekend is relaxed. There is scheduled free time for walks, naps, volleyball, kickball, basketball, frisbee, and just hanging out.
The decision to register for this retreat is a serious one and should not be taken lightly. You must be willing to reflect on your relationship with Jesus and be open to deepening that relationship in a communal setting.
Parents, you are asked to e-sign the application, which will require you to check a box and type your name on the application which your student is submitting. This can only be done via your student's Bellarmine account.
