Retreats

Retreats offer time away from campus life to reflect on who we are, who God is, how we are known and loved by God, and how to respond to that love. They also provide an opportunity to meet new people and find support for living a spiritual, faith-filled life. Diverse in focus, setting and length, Campus Ministry retreats are rooted in Ignatian spirituality.
