Campus Ministry encourages students to take time out to reflect on their faith and build community with their peers.

In a world that seems incredibly demanding, distracting, and fast, Campus Ministry encourages students to take time out to stop, reflect on their faith, and to build community with their peers.  We offer retreats for each class level to support students in personal spiritual growth, to encourage reflection that leads to gratitude, and to strengthen relationships. Students of all faiths are welcome and encouraged to lead and to participate in retreats.
