WHAT is Kairos? “καιρoς” is the Greek work referring to the “Lord’s time”. It describes the time in our lives when we reflect on where we are and where we are going. This retreat is usually offered in most Catholic high schools throughout the United States for teens in their junior or senior year of high school. The Diocese of Joliet is now offering this amazing experience to high school teens who are not attending a Catholic school. Our Kairos retreats are unique because we offer a 3-day version from Friday to Sunday and they are co-educational. The youth who participate in and lead these retreats come from both public and Catholic high schools. They come from many different parishes throughout the entire diocese. These retreats are led by trained peer leaders in high school with appropriate adult leadership from priests and male and female lay ministers.

WHERE?  Kairos Location will be held at Our Lady of Angels Retreat Center in Lemont
