After a year of praying, planning, and renovating Cardinal Gibbons recently reopened the Short Journey Retreat Center and welcomed its first retreatants to their home away from home.
“The one thing I love most about Gibbons is how we integrate faith into our daily lives, such as prayer before classes and practices or the opportunity to attend daily Mass. These opportunities allow both students and educators to be reminded that not only is our relationship with God important, but also that through Him and His work all things are possible.”David Carroll, Senior
Ah, Tradition! Every year for the past 25 years, a group of Gibbons students and educators have attended Easter Sunday Mass at St. Peter’s Square in Rome as part of the annual school-sponsored trip to Italy.
Just as Gibbons students are involved in outreach opportunities, so are Gibbons parents, who are working together to serve and give back to our surrounding community.
Gibbons Alumni have enduring memories of their retreat experience - from discovering insights about themselves to growing closer to God. They also recall how the experience impacted their futures.
During a Gibbons retreat, educators and students eat, play, and pray together, as well as grow in their love for God and for one another. By the end of the retreat, they also experience a transformation.
