Grad Student & Young Professional Retreat February 1-2, 2020
Weber Center in Adrian, MI
All graduate students and young professionals are invited to join us for our Winter 2020 overnight retreat. The retreat includes opportunities for prayer, reflection, silence, faith-sharing and building community, all on the beautiful grounds of the Weber Retreat Center. Join us as we further explore how to live as intentional, faith-filled, young adult Catholics.
Busy Person Retreat Fall 2019 & Lent 2020
If you are someone looking to start a daily habit of prayer, to dive deeper into an already active prayer life, or simply to grow in your relationship with God – the Busy Person Retreat (BPR) is for you. With this retreat, retreatants commit to 15 minutes of individual daily prayer and 30-45 minutes of conversation each week with a spiritual companion.
The campus ministry team will use the preferences you indicate on your registration form to prayerfully match you with a spiritual companion who best meets your needs and desires.
Small Church Communities Fall 2019 & Lent 2020
SCC’s provide time each week to read, pray, and grapple with the Word, reflect on God’s role in our lives and grow in faith and fellowship. Check out the SCC Page for more details, and to sign up.
Please contact Fr. Joe Wagner, S.J. for more information about the Grad/YP group.
