Marist School Retreats

Marist School offers multiple opportunities for students to participate in retreats at each grade level.  All of the retreats are led by students who are chosen and trained by faculty members to provide a meaningful and fun experience for students to grow in their relationship with God.  Retreats are voluntary and over 90% of the students participate in a retreat during their time at Marist.  
In August, an email is sent to parents of current Marist students with the link for the online registration form. Register early for the retreat that is best for your schedule. For more information, please contact
