Kairos (retreat)

Kairos (from Greek καιρός,") is a Roman Catholic retreat program for high school and college. Kairos is part of the larger three-day movement in America, ultimately derived from the Cursillo movement founded in Spain in 1944. As such, the retreat is a four-day, three-night (or three-day, two-night in some cases) residential retreat, with the aim of providing participants the chance to " contemplate God's role in their lives".

Doubt the first. Cry the second. Trust the third. Live the fourth.

It was first held in 1965, and under its current name since 1979. It is conceptually based in Ignatian spirituality, as put forth in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola. Kairos retreats are organized by several Catholic high schools in the United States, especially Jesuit schools, and since more recently they are also offered by certain schools in Australia, Ireland, Britain and Canada.
