Retreats offer our students opportunities to express their faith, to learn more about themselves, and to experience different forms of prayer.
Retreats add another dimension to complement our Theology academic program. AKairos is a student-led, adult-supervised retreat held over the course of four days at St. Peter and Paul’s retreat center in Newark. It is open to select juniors and all seniors.
Kairos is the Greek word for the right or opportune moment, but has also come to mean “God’s Time.” Kairos at Newark Catholic is about taking time out for God, leaving the world to grow in faith and friendship with the Lord and each other.
Kairos is one of the highlights of the school year for upperclassmen and is a tradition that continues to grow.ll Newark Catholic students participate in at least one retreat experience per year, with the Kairos Retreat being an additional option for select Juniors and all Seniors. As well retreat opportunities through Damascus Mission camps and area parishes are communicated.
