Westside Catholic High School Retreat

We cordially invite all high school students to attend the 34th annual Westside Catholic Youth Retreat (formerly known as Visi Retreat). The retreat will be held February 16-18 at Higher Ground Retreat Center in West Harrison, IN. The retreat is led by young adults and college students, under the guidance of our Core Team.

The Westside Catholic Retreat was started by Visitation parishioners in 1990 and has occurred annually ever since. While the retreat began as an event for teens who belonged to Visitation, it has grown to attract teenagers from many backgrounds. In fact, last year’s retreat included students from 20 parishes and 18 different high schools. We welcome teenagers from all parishes, not just those on the West Side of Cincinnati.

This retreat is designed to encourage spiritual growth, promote self-esteem and foster the development of a positive self-attitude. Throughout the weekend, we will be focusing on the many different challenges and opportunities that each of us face in our lives. These three days will provide you with a chance to hit pause and reflect on your life. It is an important time to open up and show your true self to others. The retreat will give you some time to think about God’s plan for your life, and what values are most important to you.

We hope you can join us on this retreat February 16-18, 2024. The fee is $175 per retreatant. If a family sends more than one child, the fee is reduced to $125 for each additional child. Please do not let financial reasons delay your registration or keep you away from the retreat. If you have difficulty paying, please contact us to discuss payment options.

In years past, registration has filled up quickly, so do not hesitate to register or get your name on the waiting list.
