Busy Student Retreat

February 14 - March 28, 2018

Has it been a challenge for you to carve out time for prayer amid your packed schedule?

Are you interested in attending a retreat, but can’t afford to give up a whole weekend to go out to LUREC?

Are you looking for a way to deepen your relationship with God and to find new ways to pray this Lent? 

If your answer is “yes” to the above questions, then the Busy Student Retreat is for you!

The on-campus Busy Student Retreat pairs students with a spiritual director to help them find ways to deepen their personal relationship with God and incorporate new ways of praying to their individual prayer life.  This retreat is free and open for both Loyola undergraduate and graduate students!

Registration Deadline is Friday, February 2
