Guided by our CSJ sisters and the charism of "unifying love", our retreat programming is centered around a spirituality of belonging.
Retreats are planned and facilitated by student leaders and are created to welcome each and every student, no matter their faith practices or where they are on their spiritual journey.

In order to meet the many demands on students life today, OLP has a unique retreat model that helps our students to value and prioritize their spiritual journey. With our model of “Retreat Week”, all grade-level retreats take place during a week of no academic classes, removing additional academic burdens. With this model, students are not asked to choose between valuable instructional class time and faith formation. This allows them to focus on their retreat and faith experience.
- Our retreat programming is mission-centered and focuses on faith development, spiritual growth, sisterhood, and community building. Although Retreat Week is the only time of the year that we offer all-class retreats, additional retreat opportunities are offered throughout the year.
- There are no additional fees to participate in OLP retreat week experiences. All costs are covered through tuition. Participation in Retreat Week is mandatory for all students, and counted as a regular week of school.
