TYPES OF RETREATS
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 three-day retreat format is used extensively across the United States. The retreat encourages the building of a strong community through openness, reflection, and trust.
