Καιρός - "God's Time, A Time Set Apart"
Kairos is a four day, three night, student-led retreat in which students join faculty for prayer, community, liturgy, quiet reflection, and reconciliation. All Kairos retreats begin at SLUH at 4:00pm and conclude around 7:00pm on the fourth day of the retreat.
Seniors can attend one of three Kairos retreats. The November retreat is held during "Retreat Week" when no classes are scheduled. Senior Advisors are the leaders on Freshman Retreat and, as a result, cannot attend the November Kairos retreat. The Kairos retreats in January are run simultaneously at different retreat houses. They are each excused absences from a student's Senior Project.
- Kairos 81: November 19-22, 2017
- Kairos 82: January 9-12, 2018
- Kairos 83: January 9-12, 2018
For seniors, the retreat cost is $50, a fee that covers a portion of the total cost. Speak with Mr. Gilmore if the cost is an issue. It is the school's philosophy that cost never prohibit a student from attending a retreat.
Additionally, seniors who have already been on Kairos are eligible to apply to lead all our Kairos retreats. Applications are now being accepted from Kairos alums from the Class of 2018 to lead all five retreats for the 2017-18 school year. Contact Mr. Gilmore to receive an application.
Juniors have the choice between one of two Kairos retreats. To fulfill their retreat requirement, the school has fully endowed retreats for all juniors. The April Kairos retreat occurs during a "Retreat Week" and involves only one missed day of classes. The May Kairos retreat is in the first week of the students' summer vacation.
- Kairos 84: April 3-6, 2018
- Kairos 85: May 29 – June 1, 2018
