Campus Ministry

Faith development is the cornerstone of our mission. Its focus on spiritual and moral growth, outreach and service to others, welcomes all students, regardless of religious affiliation. There is a place for everyone! As a Catholic high school within the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, Badin is founded in faith and tradition. Roughly 85% of our students are Roman Catholic, but all students are encouraged to fully live his/her own faith as they continue on their spiritual journey in high school.

Retreat Program

(newly updated for the 2018–2019 school year)

At Badin, retreat is an opportunity for students to get away from the reality of daily life where they can gain much needed perspective on various aspects of life to help them grow spiritually, emotionally and maturely. All retreats are a requirement for each student at every grade level! All retreat fees are charged to a students’ FACTS account. We believe that retreat is a gift for all to enjoy!

  • Freshman Ramily Retreat

  • Freshman Retreat
    Freshman Retreat

    Each year members of the freshman class participate in a 1-day retreat off campus at a local YMCA camp. Boys and girls attend on separate days so that while participating in a variety of low-level ROPES activities they are able to be fully present both physically and emotionally. Led by junior leaders, this retreat allows our freshmen the opportunity to learn from one another and from the senior leaders!

  • Sophomore JOY Retreat

  • Sophomore JOY Retreat
    All sophomores attend a one-night retreat led by members of the senior class. With a focus on JOY (Jesus, Others, and Yourself), sophomores will be given an opportunity to grow in faith and class unity while examining the relationships that are truly important in life.

  • Junior Kairos Retreat

  • Kairos Retreat
    A historically senior retreat, Kairos has been moved to the junior year at Badin. As a way to guide students through the Kairos process, juniors will make their Kairos retreat and have the opportunity to grow during both junior and senior years after returning from their retreat! Kairos is a required retreat which is a 3-night, 4-day retreat led by members of the senior class and our faculty / staff. All members of the junior class make a Kairos retreat at some point in the year. This retreat is an opportunity for students to look at Christ in their lives and their relationships with friends and family. Discovery of the focus of Kairos is a process; each activity builds upon the others and leads to future activities. There are numerous ‘surprises’ that come at specific points in the retreat for very specific purposes! Spiritual, personal, and emotional growth are all goals of this retreat.

  • Senior COMPASS Retreat

  • (To begin 2020-21 school year)

    COMPASS is retreat that will allow our students the opportunity to being to look at where they are right now and where they are headed into their future! We hope to look at growth: socially, spiritually, and interpersonally. There will be a leadership team of college grads who can serve as witnesses for our students as they transition to life after Badin. The theme “COMPASS” is suggested as we hope to be able to provide them with tools to guide them on their journey into adulthood & ‘show them the way’ to success.
