Kairos

The pinnacle of our four-year retreat program is the Kairos retreat held for seniors. Kairos is a Greek word (καιρός) which at best translates to God’s time. It is different from time measured in the chronology of events. This time away with God welcomes seniors to examine, develop, and deepen their relationships with God, themselves, and others. There are four retreats available to seniors throughout the year and a summer retreat offered to rising seniors. Kairos will be experienced at Alliance Redwoods, providing a “renewal in the redwoods” in Occidental, California, and Applegate Jesuit Retreat Center in Applegate, California. Both these locations provide the space for encountering God in creation. 

Kairos 96: Register for October 22-25, 2024 at Alliance Redwoods.

Kairos 97: Register for November 12-15, 2024 at Alliance Redwoods.
