Reach out to the Campus Ministry Office for reflection guides. Additionally, you may spend time in online retreat experiences on topics of Racial Justice, Interfaith Encounter, or Creative Spirit on our Virtual Resources Page.

Camping Retreats

Held semesterly or annually, this overnight retreat invites all to reconnect with the beauty of creation and develop a care for our common home. Contact Fr. John or Campus Ministry for information about this year’s camping retreats and how you can get involved.

True Self Retreat

The True Self Retreat is a guided weekend retreat at the Abbey of Gethsemani in Bardstown, KY. Typically held in February, the retreat gives retreatants a day for relaxation and an opportunity to focus on what it is that helps them deepen their faith. Activities and reflections on Thomas Merton’s life and writings encourage students to understand their call and purpose in life. 

Most of the faith-based groups sponsor day-long or weekend retreats with other members of their faith traditions. Contact the Office of Campus Ministry for referral.
