Retreats

Mater Dei Retreats

\n


\nFreshman and Sophomore Students

\n

We are pleased to offer our freshman and sophomore students a one-day retreat during the first semester. On their retreat day, students are bussed to St. Anthony Catholic Church’s Parish Center in Beckemeyer. A retreat team from NET Ministries, a youth ministry organization based in St. Paul, Minnesota, leads our students during this faith experience, focusing on a different aspect of faith for each class. The NET team consists of approximately twelve college–age men and women who volunteer a year of their lives to share their faith with students across the nation. Screened and trained, the NET team members do an excellent job of challenging our freshman and sophomore students to deepen both their faith and their understanding of our Catholic tradition. (For additional information on NET Ministries, please contact Mr. Jim Darr, our Campus Minister (618.526.7216), or visit www.netusa.org).

\n

Junior and Senior Students

\n

We are pleased to offer our junior and senior students a one-day retreat during the first semester. On their retreat day, the students are bussed to St. Anthony Catholic Church’s Parish Center in Beckemeyer. A retreat team from REAP, a Catholic youth retreat ministry of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, leads our students during this faith experience. Utilizing a different approach than the NET team, the REAP Team challenges our junior and senior students to a greater degree than the freshman and sophomore students. The REAP team consists of salaried and volunteer men and women who share their faith with students in the St. Louis metropolitan area. (For additional information on REAP, please contact Mr. Jim Darr, our Campus Minister (618.526.7216), or visit www.reapteam.org).

Diocesan Retreats

\n


\nQuest

\n

All freshman and sophomore students are encouraged to attend Quest, which is a 33-hour retreat sponsored by the Diocese of Belleville.

\n

TEC (Teens Encounter Christ)

\n

All juniors and seniors are encouraged to attend TEC, which is a three-day retreat sponsored by the Diocese of Belleville.
