Retreats

Campus Ministry encourages students to take time out to reflect on their faith and build community with their peers.
We offer retreats for each class level to support students in deepening their relationship with God. Our programs provide meaningful experiences of personal reflection and community building which recognize both the faith struggle of adolescence and the fullest personal development of young women. Our retreats are led by teams of peer ministers, faculty, and the campus ministry staff.

Class Level Retreats

Freshman Retreat

Growing in the Good Soil

This is a one-day prayer experience which is based on the Parable of the Sower from Mark 4:1-9. The freshmen are invited to consider how their life experiences relate to the images in the parable and how prayer and spirituality could help them remain centered through the challenging and celebratory times in their life.

The day is led by a team of Peer Ministers and includes small group activities, class bonding, faith sharing, and talks written by the peer ministers. It is a mandatory event for each freshman and is offered once in each semester so that families may choose the more convenient session. The retreat is open to and enriched by all faith traditions.
