Busy Person’s Retreat

Can you take one hour out of your week for three weeks this Lent to enhance your relationship with your God? Looking for a safe space to grapple with important issues in your life through the eyes of faith?

On a Busy Person’s Retreat, you receive a weekly handout via email with a reading from the Christian Bible, artwork, related readings and quotes, and reflection questions. Spend 30 minutes with it on your own. Then come in and chat with a campus minister for 30 minutes about any insights you had. Near the end of Lent, everyone who participated in the retreat can gather for an optional group wrap-up to share reflections with each other. It’s that simple!

For Lent 2017, the retreat starts the week of March 6. You select the three weeks you want to do the retreat, not including Spring Break. For more information, contact Kathy Tardif, Catholic Campus Minister.

Here is what students have thought of the retreat:

“The retreat helped me though a stressful semester. It forced me to stop and reflect on all that was going on in my life.”

“I was able to learn valuable lessons from this retreat in addition to gaining spiritual insight, especially during my one-on-one conversations each week.”

“My life was enhanced both in spiritual and in personal ways. I was reminded of the important things in life and got a chance to understand how powerful God is in my life.”

“My spiritual life changed because I looked more at my life and at what things mean. I also treasured God’s gifts that he’s given us.”
