Retreats provide an important time for students to reflect inwardly on who they are in relationship with God and others. Retreats are a part of our school curriculum, therefore retreats are mandatory for all of our students. Our retreats begin with Mass, followed by reflections, activities, and time for individual or small group prayer and reflections. Sophomore, Junior, and Senior retreats take place at a site off campus, and the Freshman retreat takes place at Roncalli Catholic.

Uncover RCHS, Discover YOU

The goal of the freshmen retreat is to help our freshmen understand the history of the school; to appreciate how its rich history presently influences the school mission; and to help them understand who they are as disciples of Christ within that mission. While on retreat, we spend time learning about our founders: St. John Baptist de LaSalle, Blessed Alix le Clerc, and our namesake, Pope St. John XXIII. In addition to learning about these inspiring individuals, we challenge our freshmen to see how the marks of the RCHS mission: wisdom, courage, and faith, are relevant pieces to their identity as members of the Roncalli Catholic faith community. The retreat experience culminates in the celebration of the Mass and rejoining the RCHS community.

Courage to Serve

The goal of the sophomore retreat is to encourage our sophomores to experience first hand the value of hands-on work as a part of the school’s mission to serve. Sophomores will have an opportunity to practice courage through acts of service to members of the Omaha community, and thus realize the gift of giving one’s self in service to those in need.

Wisdom to Be Present

The goal of the junior retreat is to enable our juniors to experience the challenging, yet rewarding service of presence as modeled by Christ through his public ministry. Through time spent at numerous organizations in the Omaha area, juniors will have an opportunity to understand that the gift of presence, characterized by listening, being compassionate, and doing activities with others, is as valuable an act of service as assisting others through work.

My Future of Faith in Christ

The goal of the senior retreat is to provide seniors with an opportunity to reflect on their faith journey while at Roncalli Catholic, and establish a plan for how they can continue to sustain their faith after graduation.
