Kairos, the Greek word meaning the "right time," - or in theology “the appointed time in the purpose of God” - is an intensive three-day retreat where Ryan Seniors open themselves up to God's love as well as the love of their family and friends. These students have the option of making this retreat - it is not mandatory. Over the years it has become very popular among the students and continues to be one of the highlights of Senior year.
The spirit of the retreat is one of acceptance and love. Kairos is an opportunity to grow in relationship with God, self, and others. The retreatants come to recognize God's presence in all things: in music, nature, family, friendships, and especially Sacred Scripture and the Sacraments. The Kairos retreat is based upon the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius Loyola and is specifically adapted for high school.
