Silent Retreat

Silent retreats have been a part of the Christian spiritual tradition for centuries. By taking the time to calm our minds, we can listen to God more clearly and discern His will for us. Come and deepen your experience of Christ by joining us for our annual silent retreat weekend. This retreat is open to undergraduate and graduate students.

Encounter Christ

Without a deep encounter with Christ, we will never deepen our own conversion.  At the most basic level, without a lived relationship with Christ, we cannot begin to imagine what it means to do as Peter and the others did: to leave everything behind and follow Jesus.  

This overnight retreat will invite us to deepen our own relationship with Christ by reflecting on our own experiences of Christ, as well as on some of the encounters of those who walked with Jesus during His earthly life. Spend a weekend exploring and deepening your encounter with the living Christ.
