The Encounter with Christ Retreat is one of Creighton's most popular because of how many students have felt it invites them into a deeper and more mature relationship with God and with one another. The retreat includes many witness talks and small group conversations, each focused on questions like: Who am I? Who is God? How do my experiences of God call me to live in my life? These questions are never fully answered for us, but the Encounter with Christ Retreat can be an important and meaningful opportunity to explore them!
