Prayer and Retreat

Prayer and retreat help St. Louis students to know God better and remain close to him.  When our students pray, they are opening their minds and hearts to God, allowing him to work in and through them. Retreats provide dedicated time for both prayer and community were students build relationships with people who share their same beliefs and values. All of the school's worship and prayer are rooted in the traditions of the Catholic church.

  • Retreats for 5th – 8th grades, including multi-day outdoor retreat for 6th, 7th and 8th grades
  • Daily morning and afternoon prayer as a school community

  • Weekly rotating confession, including adoration, the rosary, and Lectio Divina for 2nd- 8th
  • Altar service training for all 5th grade Catholic students, providing an up close and personal view of Mass
  • Faculty and Student ambassadors including monthly morning Mass attendance combined with small group sessions
  • Monthly formation retreats for school staff
