KAIROS

 

KAIROS retreats are modeled on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. The Spiritual Exercises help us work so that the decisions we make are motivated by love of God instead of attachment to worldly desires.

In the “First Principle and Foundation,” St. Ignatius calls us to reflect on our own journey with God. Ignatian spirituality is at the core of the KAIROS retreat. We are invited to take time to pray and reflect on how Christ comes to meet us.

Open to all Blessed Trinity students and 100% led and organized by selected, trained student retreat leaders, KAIROS retreats were brought to BT three years ago by students themselves, some of whom are senior retreat leaders now. Their purpose was simple: to provide a regular opportunity to step away from the many demands of life at Blessed Trinity in order to draw closer to God and to focus on making that relationship the foundation of their lives. The word ‘kairos’ is Greek for “the right time,” and so our invitation to our retreatants is this: "Come and live in God’s time for a while, and keep on living in it!"
