Saint Angela’s Call invites our students each year to listen to her call and act upon it. On their retreats they experience “insieme” or togetherness within the spiritual family she created and find ways to bring their faith and hope alive, carrying it with them for a lifetime.
Theme: Who Am I?
Our junior student-led freshmen retreats allow our freshmen to explore who they are through student leader reflections, varying enriched group activities, personal reflection, and small group discussions.

Our senior student-led sophomore retreats allow our sophomores to find ways to build cooperative relationships with one another through Camp Ernst’s high ropes course, Camp Ernst’s Team Building Activities, SUA student leader reflections, personal reflection, small group discussions, and a closing prayer service overlooking the lake.
Theme: How is my worldview both changing and challenging?
Our senior student-led junior retreats at Saint Vincent de Paul allow our juniors to build their worldview while demonstrating Christ’s love for one another.
