Stepping away from the patterns of daily life creates the space and time for reflection and growth in one's spiritual journey. Campus Ministry invites the university community to participate in a variety of retreat experiences throughout the year. Each retreat has a unique focus, ranging from contemplation and discernment to fellowship.
