Retreat Week 2023

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,

 

As noted in the weekly bulletin, we are excited to offer our 6th annual OLP Retreat Week experience January 4 - 6, 2023! The OLP retreat program celebrates and is rooted in the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph. Each grade level will explore a unique piece of the CSJ charism. The OLP faculty and staff will retreat on Tuesday, January 3rd, with the student retreat programming beginning on Wednesday, January 4th. 

 

Please read below to learn more about your daughter’s grade-specific retreat experience. Should you have any questions regarding the general Retreat Week schedule, please reach out to our Service Learning & Retreats Director, Mrs. Katie Wilson, at [email protected]

New to our Retreat Week programming this year is our Intersession activities. Modeled after fellow Catholic high schools, this programming builds community, sisterhood and camaraderie between students and faculty around shared interests and passions. The faculty-led outings are meant to be supplemental, fulfilling experiences in addition to the traditional grade-level retreats during Retreat Week. Through the platform of unique extracurricular activities, we are lifting up the concept that “sharing of the heart” often happens outside of the classroom. Please feel free to read through the list of options and sign up for activities that interest you! There is a wide variety of options, and something fun for everyone! Please note that you may only sign up for events that are happening outside of your grade-level retreat time, and you are invited to sign up for more than one event. Please see the sign-up options further down this email.

Sign-Ups for INTERSESSION are LIVE, spots will be reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis, open through Sunday, December 11th.

As a reminder, there are no additional fees to participate in our OLP grade-level retreats, as all costs are covered through tuition. As such, participation in each grade level retreat is considered mandatory for all students, as a regular day of school. If you need to report an attendance issue, please communicate with your Assistant Principal for your last name alpha-split by Friday, December 16.
