St. John Retreat Ministry warmly welcomes and encourages students to further explore their faith and grow in relationship with God, self and others. Like a hearty meal for the soul, a well timed retreat feeds our faith while nourishing our mind, body and spirit.
With a variety of retreat offerings, a place to pray, rest and meet new friends, we hope that you will take time for a retreat this year to strengthen you in your faith life and grow with your family here at St. John Student Center.
Each retreat has its own student team that works with ministry professionals to provide a faith experience you will remember. Student leaders decide on the theme for the retreat and the talks that will be given. Each team member is expected to recruit other students to attend, plus make a commitment to attend all planning meetings. For more information on joining a retreat team, contact Sr. Dorothy (email@example.com).
