Live Jesus Retreat XLII
The Live Jesus Retreats are held twice a year, in the fall and the spring, and led by seniors and Campus Ministry. Each three day retreat is unique depending on the leadership and the message they have for the group. The retreat concludes with participants joining their families back on campus for Mass. Following Mass, retreatants are invited to share what the weekend has meant to them. The responses vary but consistently mentioned are how enlightening it was to hear about other student's struggles and challenges related to their own and how they were able to get to know people outside their friendship groups. All cell phones are left behind, and amazingly, students also shared how they enjoyed being disconnected. Most consider this a life changing experience and just another way the education of students is enhanced, fulfilling our mission of educating the whole person, mind, body and soul.
