RETREATS
 
 

SOM Retreat 2012 2

Love of neighbor is a path that leads to an encounter with God and closing our eyes to our neighbor also blinds us to God.
(Pope Benedict XVI, Deus Caritas Est, 16).
A retreat is a day to break away, meet new people your own age, deepen your faith, and have fun.
  

 

 

Pictures 2011-2012 School Year 072 Retreats are held each Semester (Friday evening into Satruday morning). 
Take a break from College life, grab your sleeping bag and join the Newman Leadership Team!
