Our Retreat Offerings

As we seek to educate the whole person and teach "a way of life," Lansing Catholic offers a variety of retreat and spiritual growth opportunities.  Our retreats include testimonies from faculty, staff, and upperclassmen, as well as time for small group discussion and personal reflection.  Attending a retreat each year at Lansing Catholic is a graduation requirement.

If you have any questions about any of our retreats or other opportunities, please contact our Director of Campus Ministry, Ben Pohl, at 517-267-2115.

Kairos (Juniors and Seniors)

Kairos is considered by many to be the capstone spiritual experience at Lansing Catholic.  The word Kairos means, “the Lord's time,” and participants hear a series of talks, participate in discussions and activities, and celebrate the Eucharist together.  Participants should be open to going deeper into a life of discipleship and be interested in examining their life in light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Several staff members and some of our seniors who participated as juniors will lead our Kairos retreat.

Flint Immersion Retreat (Seniors)

This retreat helps form students in the Christian vision of service, as they not only take part in service but also hear talks and take time to discuss with each other their experiences.  This retreat has a limited capacity and is only available to those who are not ready to attend Kairos and those who attended Kairos as a junior.

Senior Morning of Reflection

The entire senior class will spend one morning during second semester offsite at St. John Student Center in East Lansing.  They will hear from recent Lansing Catholic graduates about the transition to college, as well as some adults who do campus ministry at MSU.

Senior U.P. Retreat

This retreat begins the day after graduation and is a great opportunity to reflect with the Lord on the transition out of high school.  The retreat takes place near Paradise, MI in the Upper Peninsula, at a new religious community called The Companions of Christ the Lamb.  Their 1,000+ acre grounds and rustic lodging provide retreatants with the space to encounter the Lord in the silence of their hearts.  Our retreat will include daily Mass, Liturgy of the Hours, and community meals, as well as short talks focused on the life ahead of you.  The time between breakfast and dinner will be silent, with community time each evening.
