All-School Retreat September 1, 2021

August 4, 2021



We have an exciting school retreat scheduled to kickoff our school year for STUDENTS, PARENTS, AND GRANDPARENTS! The retreat will take place on Wednesday, September 1st  from 9:00am-11:30am and then conclude with Mass and lunch (optional).  The retreat is titled, “DRAGON SLAYERS” and it will be led by author/speaker John Wood and his wife Kristin. John and Kristin have presented this fun presentation all over the country, and we are confident you and your child will love this experience! Dragon Slayers is currently in the running for best new Catholic Innovative idea in America!

In the second hour of the retreat, while the students are having their own session, John Wood will host a presentation specifically for parents and grandparents. John has spoken at hundreds of parishes and schools across the country, and his book, “Ordinary Lives, Extraordinary Mission,” has sold over 240,000 copies. New York Times Bestselling author Matthew Kelly has said, “I believe John is one of the great emerging Catholic voices of our time. John Wood has a passion that is contagious…make an effort to hear him speak!” This is NOT an informational meeting, this is an inspiring talk that you DON’T WANT TO MISS! We promise it will be worth your time, and John will be giving the parents/caregivers in attendance a gift bag worth over $200, including a large, beautiful wooden crucifix! There is no cost to attend the retreat.

  We hope you are able to take this day off to visit Holy Cross, celebrate Mass with your child, and BE INSPIRED! While we hope that at least one parent/caregiver can be present, we would love for both parents to attend. It would mean the world to your child. (Grandparents are welcome too!) If at least one parent/grandparent is unable to make it that day, please let me know. 

Thanks and I look forward to seeing you on September 1st!
