Oakland Catholic encourages spiritual formation through inward reflection and prayer as a cornerstone of our mission statement.
“Jesus went out to a mountain side to pray, and spent the night praying to God. When morning came, he called his disciples to him.” -Luke 6:12-13
Frequently in Scripture we hear of Christ taking time in silence to be with His Father (Mark 1:12, Mark 1:35, Luke 5:16). In imitation of Christ, retreats at Oakland allow our students a chance to tune out the demands and distractions of daily life, technology, and homework, to focus on achieving a higher sense of self and truly a deeper and more intimate relationship with Our Lord.
