What Is Going Deeper?

Going deeper is a retreat for youth who are actively involved in their parish or have participated in other retreats and events and who have a fervor to grow in the faith. The hope is that participants will experience a much deeper understanding of how to pray and how to know what God is desiring in their life. Further, participants will discover the beauty and practice of God’s heart speaking to yours each and every day. We will be spending a majority of the time in prayer and will have the opportunity to receive the Sacraments.  

The Spiritus Retreat (one of our four themes) also has a unique emphasis on the Holy Spirit. Students will be introduced to some charismatic methods of prayer.

This is not a Confirmation Retreat.

Upcoming Retreats

  • April 9-11th – Abbey of the Hills

Who Can Attend?

The retreat is open to youth in grades 9-12.  However, youth in grades 9-10 are required to submit a completed Recommendation Form from their pastor that indicates that they are active in the parish and are not attending the retreat as part of their Confirmation requirements.  These forms can be sent to Eric Gallagher at egallagher@sfcatholic.org.

We do ask the students to be present for the entirety of the retreat. Students who have outside commitments during the retreat need to first get permission from our office before registering. Those requests can be sent to Grace Tibbetts at gtibbetts@sfcatholic.org


The cost for the retreat is $100.  Non-refundable.
