Ways to Get Involved

Grandparents’ Retreats

This year, we offered an opportunity to join us in prayer as we celebrated the season of Advent with a unique Grandparents' Advent Prayer Retreat. The retreat took place virtually on December 2, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The retreat was led by Sr. Sharon Karam, RSCJ and Mr. Dennis Phillips, Head of School. The retreat was titled: Praying with Hope as We Wait with Advent Anticipation. We enjoyed a prayerful time together to celebrate the season of Advent.

We anticipate offering a Lenten Prayer Retreat for Grandparents.  Check back here for more details and registration information in February 2021.

Virtual Classroom Visits 2020-21 

We know how much Grandparents' Day means to our community!  In place of our annual Grandparents' Day on Regis’ campus, we invite you to participate in brief visits to your grandson’s classroom via zoom.  Kindergarten, first and second grade visits have been a great success, and the remaining grades will be scheduled soon. We will reach out to you by email with the time and the zoom link.

Grandparents' spirituality book Club 

Gather together as Regis grandparents and explore the topics of prayer: understanding the ritual practices of the major world religions; Ignatian, Sacred Heart, and Benedictine spirituality; caring for each other; and grief and pastoral counseling. The book club selects a book each month and then gathers to discuss how it can apply to our daily lives. As an added bonus, groups that gather can visit the Regis classrooms and observe their grandson's learning environment in action. 

Grades 7 & 8 Career Chats

Share your career experience with your grandson’s class! During “scholars and gentlemen” time, Zoom in and lead an interactive exploration of the many career tracks available to Regis students, as they look forward to high school, college and their own career choices. 

Join us for Mass via ZOOM

While our community cannot gather together in person for Mass, we offer parents and grandparents the opportunity to join us virtually.  A Zoom link will be sent out via email the week before the Mass. Upcoming dates include:
