Retreats: Seniors

Christian Awakening Retreat

The Senior Christian Awakening retreat is a three and one-half day retreat experience. This retreat allows seniors time to reflect on their relationship with themselves, others and God. It is a spiritual highlight of a student’s four years at BCHS and the culmination of the high school retreat experience. The details of the retreat are kept confidential so as to maximize the experience for each senior. It is a significant point in the lives of these young men and women.

Any help with keeping details of the retreat quiet from other seniors, younger siblings and younger students is greatly appreciated.

The retreat is offered on several dates throughout the course of the senior year to accommodate busy schedules. The Senior Christian Awakening retreat is a worthwhile experience, and the faculty and staff of BCHS encourage all seniors to take advantage of the opportunity to attend.

There will be 4 retreat dates available for the Class of 2019: November 6-9; January 15-18, February 5-8 and February 26-March 1.

We do not want anyone to miss the opportunity to participate because of financial concerns. If a parent needs help with the cost, please contact Carol Wagner, Director of Campus Ministry at cwagner@bishopchatard.org. Your request will be held in strict confidence.

RT @BCHS_Principal Mrs. Henry & Mrs. Welch wrote a grant and received funding from the city to begin a composting service at BCHS. All food waste from the cafeteria will be processed by a company called Green with Indy. This will divert about 30lbs of food waste a day from the landfill to compost.
