Men for Others

February 14 - 15, 2020

What is the call and challenge to live out the “Men for Others” motto of St. Xavier High School? Utilizing the framework of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, we will ponder and pray about our identity, our relationships, and our mission as men of faith. Looking back, looking within, and looking ahead, we will discern our call to be “men for others” and pray for the graces to live out that identity in our everyday lives. As you prepare for this retreat, please consider and reflect upon these questions: Who are the “men for others” in your own life? How do they inspire and teach you along your way?
