Lincoln Pius X Catholic High School

Annual retreats have many benefits for the one who aims to grow in holiness and offer a strong opportunity for spiritual formation. We must step away from the busyness of our daily lives and pause to listen to God’s voice.

Important Dates

  • May 15 – Retreat Registration Opens (One retreat only; first come, first serve )
  • Aug. 12 – 9th Grade Orientation 12:30 – 3:30 pm (required)
  • Aug. 13 – Diocesan 9th Grade Retreat 12:30pm-5:15pm (required; no registration is required)

  • May 1, 2023 – Deadline to complete retreat

Retreats have so much potential to completely change your life. The goal of a retreat is to allow you to encounter Christ in some way that you haven’t before. I have been on countless retreats and I continue to be amazed at the depths that Jesus is calling my heart to. I have felt Jesus’s presence in a profound way during adoration at these retreats during my time at Pius. These retreats can serve as a beginning, restart or affirmation to the holiness that all of us are called to.
