Each year, the IHC Junior/Senior High School students participate in a student retreat — an entire day focused on the heart of IHC’s mission: “To cultivate holiness based on the love and imitation of Christ.” The idea is for students to step back from the normal school day and grow spiritually.
The retreat always begins with Mass in the morning, followed by a series of activities.
Last year, the retreat featured nationally known pro-life speaker Bryan Kemper, whose personal story riveted students while at the same time stimulating them to think more broadly of God’s role in their own lives.
This year, students participated in several group workshops aimed
at instilling our spiritual values through games, artwork/crafts,
open discussion, and acting/role-playing. Father Reilly also returned
to campus with a vivacious presentation on how our non-verbal communicative behaviors influence our faith and spirituality.
The students topped off their day with $2 brownie sundaes to
benefit The Kitenga School for Girls!
The retreat also included the IHC Mystery Players enacting their Lent performance.
