Lenten Busy Student Retreat
“now, says the LORD, return to me with your whole heart" Joel 2:12
The Lenten Busy Student retreat is free and takes place during the Lenten season, on campus, in the midst of your everyday life. There are no requirements or prerequisites; anyone can make this retreat. Many people find it a great way to incorporate some form of intentional prayer and spiritual growth into their everyday lives.
The retreat has 3 components
- Time to Pray-Participants commit to 20 minites a day of prayer for the 16 days of the retreat.
- Companions-The retreat assigns students a spiritual companion, and participants meet 3 times with them over the course of the retreat. These are one-half to one-hour individual meetings with any of several campus ministers or other BC faculty/staff to discuss any issues relating to one's faith and life experience.
