Retreats at AMHS are faith-filled experiences open to all students regardless of their religious background. Our graduates recall their time on retreats as a leader or participant, as the most impactful and memorable experience at AMHS.



The KAIROS retreat experience has been a life-changing event for many AMHS students. This powerful weekend retreat is open to all juniors and seniors. Kairos, translated as “God’s time,” is a unique opportunity for juniors and seniors to strengthen their relationship with God through listening and discussion, prayer, sacrament, and time for relaxation and reflection. This four-day retreat format is used extensively across the United States. The retreat encourages the building of a strong community through openness, reflection, and trust.


The Quest retreat is open to all freshmen and sophomores and invites students to explore the three "Circles of Joy" while deepening relationships with themselves, friends, family and God.


The Freshmen retreat is required for all freshmen and is held prior to the first day of school. This retreat emphasizes getting to know one another and living the "The Murphy Way" of doing good, giving respect, showing excellence and living faith.
