The Alumni Retreat is an annual joint project between Xavier School’s Development and Alumni Relations Office (DARO) and the Alumni Association of Xavier School (AAXS).  We hope to get even wider participation in future editions.

Thirteen brave and generous Xavier School alumni agreed to spend July 7-9, 2017 at the Sacred Heart Retreat House & Seminar Center for the 2017 edition of the Alumni Retreat.  This year, our able retreat master was Fr. Arnel Aquino, S.J. who skillfully guided the participants in examining their middle-adulthood spirituality and personally directed their individual consultations.  As is always the case, all thirteen participants went away feeling gratified, consoled, inspired, recharged and ready to face life with renewed zest.  Indeed, one can never outdo our Lord in terms of generosity.  Thank you very much, Fr. Arnel!  Deo Gratias and Luceat Lux!
