Retreats are an integral part of the spiritual experience and formation of each student at Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin. Each retreat focuses on one of the core values of NDCL—community, respect, justice, integrity, and excellence. As part of their faith formation, each student will participate in a class-level retreat every year. LINK Crew helps facilitate the Freshmen Retreat, and Upperclassmen help with the Sophomore Class Retreat.

Kairos. As an upper class student, young men and women can choose to participate in Kairos, a powerful 3 or 4-day, student-led retreat which brings about a greater EXCELLENCE in one’s relationship with Christ, self, and others. Students attending miss classes and must make up the work within one week. N.B. PARENTS will receive additional important information via email once registration form is turned into Campus Ministry.
