Fund-A-Bus & Driver for Short Journey Retreat Center

The Short Journey Retreat Center extends and expands the Gibbons experience. Students deepen their connection to their faith and strengthen their friendships with each other as they develop important life and leadership skills.

We currently offer grade-level retreats throughout the year. A new bus and full-time driver would allow us to create more programming to enhance the faith life of our students and educators.
