Lenten Busy Student Retreat, March 18-April 2

“now, says the lord, return to me with your whole heart" Joel 2:12


Ash Wednesday, is March 5, 2014, the beginning of the Lenten Season

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

  1. Time to Pray-Participants commit to 20 minutes a day of prayer for the 16 days of the retreat.
  2. 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.
