Crossroads Retreat button

Crossroads Retreat

God calls each of us all in a unique way and gives us a mission that no one else can accomplish.  Your college years are a time to ponder this calling, discerning what your place in the world is. Where is God calling you? Where is your passion? What is your mission? Where and how do you fulfill it?

CROSSROADS is a time devoted to these questions as a foundation for continued discernment, grounded in the recognition that God has called you to fulfill your potential and the mission that he has for you.
