Special retreats are planned for students who will be receiving the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion in second grade and Confirmation in eighth grade:

Second grade students participate in "Jesus Day" as preparation for their First Holy Communion.

Eighth grade students go off-campus to a retreat before their Confirmation.

Retreat Events

Mother Xavier Week is celebrated each November with various activities pertaining to our school history and Mother Xavier Ross. Mother Xavier Week culminates in a very special all school-Mass with our special guests the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth.  Xavier Catholic School is named for Mother Xavier Ross, foundress of the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, who were the first to staff the Catholic elementary schools at Catholic parishes in Leavenworth. 

Catholic Schools Week is the last week in January and nationally celebrates Catholic schools.  Each day of the week is a day with special events, celebrating our schools in the community, the nation and the world and thanking all those who participate in or help our schools; priests and sisters, parishes, teachers, parents, students, volunteers and alumni.  The "main event" is a special Eucharistic Celebration.  The Archbishop is invited to celebrate at this all-systems Mass.
