Action Statement

Give to Campus Ministry

Get away.

Retreat programs help to focus our attention on the invitation of God and our response to God in various aspects of our lives. Through a variety of programs and formats, Campus Ministry invites people to deepen their spiritual awareness within a supportive, affirming community. The retreat offerings aim to meet members of the Marywood University community in their particular interests or needs, and Marywood Campus Ministry provides a selection of retreat opportunities with different styles for promoting deeper communion with God and others.

AWAKE (Freshman Retreat) - September 15, 2018

The AWAKE Retreat is a retreat designed especially for first-year students.  This experience gives students an opportunity to get off campus, meet other first-year students, explore their faith traditions, and reflect on their hopes and anxieties about their future at Marywood. Facilitated by upperclass Marywood students, this is a fun and meaningful way to begin your college experience.

RETREAT FEE:  $10  Sign-up here.

Finding God In All Things - Retreat for Busy People - January 27 through January 30, 2019

This retreat is an opportunity for any members of the Marywood community (students, faculty, staff) to quiet themselves and become more conscious of the presence of God amid the ordinariness of daily life. Participants commit to one-half hour of personal prayer every day and to one-half hour discussion with a personal spiritual companion, who helps the participant to sense the movement of God in his/her life and respond more generously to God.
