The Companions Retreat offers individual and shared spiritual support through the lens of Ignatian spirituality and life of St. Ignatius - seeking God in everyday experiences, deepening practices of prayer and reflection, and staying connected as companions on the journey through the semester. The retreat begins with an opening gathering on Friday, October 14, 2022, from 5:00 - 6:30 PM and concludes with a closing gathering on Friday, November 4, 2022 from 5:00 - 6:30 PM. Over the course of 4-weeks, students will receive prayer and reflection materials, gather for small-group prayer and reflection, and meet weekly with an assigned spiritual companion on campus.

All undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to participate in the Companions Retreat. The retreat is rooted in the Catholic, Ignatian tradition, and is open to students of all faith backgrounds.

The cost of the retreat is $25, including food and retreat materials. Campus Ministry wants to ensure that cost does not prohibit any student from attending the Companions Retreat. Please indicate if a financial need exists within the application and a campus minister will be in touch.
