The Take Hold Retreat is focused on the Salesian Standard. Through a series of student and adult talks, activities, service projects, and discussions students will break down this call to ‘live the Standard.’ Freshmen will retreat with their house.
THE SALESIAN STANDARD:On my honor as a Salesian Gentleman, I will take hold of the tradition of our patron, Saint Francis de Sales, by striving to see God in all things and learning to live each day well. I will recognize the dignity of all people, and support my Salesian brothers in word and deed. I will not lie, cheat, or steal, nor will I accept the actions of those who do. I will conduct myself responsibly and honorably in all my actions as a Salesianum student, and seek to serve a world in need.
