Connect Retreat

A day retreat for freshmen!

Two students smiling on retreatEarly in the fall semester, we invite all first-year students to participate in “Connect,” an on-campus retreat that introduces them to Campus Ministry offerings through an afternoon and evening of fun activities, small group conversations, keynote speakers, and more. Freshmen will find a space to reflect on their hopes for growing in faith, begin building community with their classmates, and get to know some of the programs with which they can become involved while in college.

We encourage students of all faith backgrounds to attend!

Connect 2016 will take place on Sunday, September 11, 2016 from 12:00 - 7:30 p.m. in the Bauccio Commons, and will include Mass and dinner.

The online registration form is now closed. If you would still like to register for the retreat, please contact Annie Boyle at or 503.943.7889.
