Kairos – meaning “God’s Time” in Greek – is a student-facilitated weekend retreat that allows for intentional reflection on relationships with God, self, and others away from the chaos of campus. Kairos is offered 12 times a year.

  • Enjoy a weekend away to relax, reflect, and refocus
  • Hear from other students about relationships, faith, and reflections on life
  • Listen, share, and build community with students you might not otherwise meet
  • Experience special Kairos surprises!

Kairos is open to students of all faith backgrounds and experiences. While the retreat is rooted in the Ignatian, Catholic tradition, any student who is willing to engage in spiritual reflection can get something out of the weekend! All undergraduate students are welcome to join the waiting list. Students are selected at random from the list and invited to attend the retreat. You'll be notified by email if your name has been drawn from the lottery. Our October retreats are exclusively for seniors. November and December are open to seniors, juniors, and sophomores. All class years are eligible to attend in the spring. 

If you have attended Kairos or a similar retreat (Search, Emmaus, DDA, XLI), please email kairos@bc.edu. While students who have already attended should NOT join the waiting list, they can engage in the community in other ways and apply to lead! Email us for more information.

If you are a graduate student, administrator, or alumnus interested in directing a Kairos retreat, please email Luis DeDios.
