Campus Ministry » Retreats


St. Monica Catholic High School offers unique and amazing retreat opportunities at all grade levels.
Freshmen begin with a day of prayer, retreat and faith development on campus and end the day with lunch on the bluff overlooking the ocean with activities on the beautiful beach of Santa Monica.
Sophomores will spend the morning doing service at Operation Gratitude, a non-profit organization that sends care packages and a variety of other goods to US Troops, Vets, First Responders, and caregivers. The second half of the day we will reflect on how we are called to serve.
Junior year, students have their first overnight retreat opportunity. Our Juniors are able to sign up to attend a 3 day, 2 night retreat at Forest Home Retreat Center in Ojai. This retreat has been a favorite for students for decades.
Seniors have the opportunity to experience Kairos, a retreat that is a faith formation experience which explores relationships with God, the retreatants and others. Our pastor, Monsignor Torgerson, describes this experience as "One of the best things that we offer our students while here at St. Monica." This retreat is a special experience of "God's Time."
Juniors and Seniors who choose not to attend the overnight retreat opportunities are able to attend a day retreat in March.
