Alverno High School’s Class of 2016 set off on their 3-day senior retreat at La Casa de Maria Retreat & Conference Center. Located on 26 acres along the banks of the San Ysidro Creek, La Casa is nestled between mountain and ocean. Now an interfaith retreat and conference center, it was founded in 1955 by the then Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Today the property is cared for by the Immaculate Heart Community, one of Alverno’s founding orders.
Alverno High School wish the seniors well on this exciting adventure that is the beginning of their final months at Alverno!
