Lenten Busy Student Retreat

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


Ash Wednesday, is February 18, 2015, 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 participate in this retreat.  Many students find that it is a great way to incorporate intentional prayer and spiritual growth into their everyday lives.


3 Components of the Lenten Busy Student Retreat

  • Time to Pray   
    Participants commit to 20 minutes a day of prayer for each of the 16 days of the retreat.

  • Companions   
    The retreat assigns students a spiritual companion. Participants meet 3 times with their spiritual companion over the course of the retreat, for 30 minutes to an hour, to discuss faith and life experience. Spiritual companions are campus ministers or other BC faculty/staff. Click here for a more comprehensive description of spiritual companions.

  • Gatherings
