The Rosary to Support Freshman Retreat – Thursday, February 6
The Prep community is invited to the Rosary to Support Freshman Retreat on Thursday, February 6 at 6:15 p.m. at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church (6116 Dodge Street). Freshman parents should drop off their sons at Prep prior to attending.
This beautiful and meaningful event intensifies the prayer by mentioning each student by name. It is a powerful way for parents to be involved in the retreat without actually being there.
The Rosary to Support Freshman Retreat is organized by CP Parents Praying with St. Ignatius. If you have questions or would like to assist with the Rosary, please contact Jeanne Schulte.

CP Parents Praying with St. Ignatius Meeting – Monday, February 10
Mark your calendars now and plan to attend the meeting of the CP Parents Praying with St. Ignatius retreat experience on Monday, February 10 from 6:45-8:30 p.m. in Room 118, located on the first floor of Creighton Prep in the hallway south of the former main entrance (just north of the chapel). Director of Adult Spirituality Fr. Kevin Schneider, SJ will guide the meeting.
Our guest speaker will be Mr. Daniel Kennedy, SJ – a Jesuit scholastic who is the director of student activities and a theology faculty member. He attended St. John’s Jesuit High School in Toledo, Ohio, where he was born and raised. In 2012, he completed his bachelor’s degree in philosophy and theology at Boston College, and entered the Chicago-Detroit Province of the Society of Jesus after graduation.
Uniquely designed with busy parents in mind, this spiritual journey takes the four-week Ignatian retreat and spreads it over nine months. Fr. Kevin leads the group in prayer, teaching and discussion of the Spiritual Exercises. He also suggests ways that participants can live the retreat each day.
