Retreat Leaders

Campus Ministry is looking for passionate students to serve as retreat leaders for the 2023-2024 school year. Retreats are a time when members of our community can step away from the daily grind of campus life and experience the divine out at LUREC. On retreats, leaders serve in a variety of capacities – building community, facilitating small groups, giving talks, and supporting participants. Consider sharing your gifts in this meaningful way!


Apply to be a Retreat Leader



Leadership experience, experience with small group reflection, strong interpersonal skills.

Previous Campus Ministry retreat experience is preferred but not required for the Loyola 360, Transfer, and Días con Dios retreats.

Applicants for leadership on both the Unwritten and Search Retreats must have previously been on the retreat for which they are applying.

It is preferred that Retreat Captain applicants have previously been a leader on the retreat they are hoping to captain. We will accept Retreat Captain applications from rising juniors, seniors, and fifth-year seniors.
