These formation events are meant to strengthen the bonds between generations and provide the kind of spiritual assistance girls need to negotiate the challenge of high school.
Each retreat is a self-contained event, so that the sequence can be entered with any of the four retreats. Each retreat has as its patrons an angel and saint. The theme of each revolves around a deep developmental aspect of moral and spiritual formation, pertinent to girls in this transition age.
The goal is to attend all four retreats. Attendance at all four retreats (ideally over a 2 year period) constitutes completion of the program. Upon graduation the girls receive a bracelet that includes symbols reminding them of how a devotion to the angels will equip them with the spiritual resources to navigate the moral dilemmas in the years ahead.

This retreat is devoted to the Archangel Raphael --chosen by God to accompany young women on their journey through life and to bring them safely to their destination and to the companions God has prepared for them.
Join us for this wonderful opportunity to forge a stronger bond between the two of you by sharing and deepening your devotion to the great Archangel Raphael as we learn about the True Meaning of Friendship. The retreat includes talks and special activities (fun!), as well as opportunities for confession, adoration, and Mass.
