The Kairos retreat is a very popular retreat for our students. We celebrated 25 years of Kairos in 2011 and offer the retreat three times yearly. Our 66th Kairos retreat will take place in January 2013. The retreat is led by a team of students who meet for months in advance to prepare. They are assisted by several faculty/staff personnel. The retreat happens away from campus.
The camping retreat is a student prepared/led retreat that takes place in the fall each year. The participants in this retreat spend a relaxing, prayerful weekend at a nearby state park, cooking for the group, taking hikes, enjoy campfires and doing other "camping" related activities.
The Busy Student's Retreat, designed for the busy student, takes place on campus for four days. Students commit themselves to spending time in quiet reflection and prayer daily using scriptures that are provided to them by the directors of the retreat. They meet daily with one of the spiritual guides to discuss the readings and their lives.
Throughout the year we sponsor days of recollection for students. These “mini-retreats” afford students a chance to grow spiritually without leaving campus.
Throughout the year different programs are offered which will help students come to a better understanding of the faith. In the past, topics have ranged from "Politics & Religion," "Sexual Ethics," "The Communion of Saints," and "Evolution & Creation." Various formats for Faith Formation include panel discussions, movie discussions, and guest speakers.
