RETREATS

Jesus You Pew Retreat

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.

Retreats are held each semester

A time for rest and rejuvenation with the Lord. 
 Contact a CCM Leader listed on our "About" section of our website.

 

Jesus & You in the Pew Retreat

Need a break from the craziness of college life?  Join us for an overnight retreat right off campus!
