  • Kairos Retreats for Juniors and Seniors

    The word Kairos means "the Lord’s time." It is a special time which extends from 4:00 p.m. on a Thursday until 6:00 p.m. the following Sunday evening and is spent at Camp Egan in Tahlequah, OK.

    During the Lord’s time, a team of students and faculty members from Cascia Hall and Bishop Kelley High Schools give talks, lead discussions, activities, prayer and celebrate the Eucharist with the participants.

    The Kairos retreat program is basically an adaptation of the adult  “Cursillo” for seniors in high school; it is extraordinarily appropriate and cohesive in its theology and philosophy.  Originally called the “Christian Awakening Program," it was developed in 1965 by a team of priests, brothers, and laymen.
