The Encounter with Christ Retreat is for Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors who are seeking an encounter with the living God of their life. The spirituality of the retreat is rooted in the Catholic, Jesuit tradition; however, any student who is seeking a deeper connection with God in their life is welcome to be a part of this retreat.
Retreatants will be invited to ponder questions of the heart and soul, such as…
- Who am I?
- Who is God?
- Where has God been active in my life?
- How do my experiences of God call me to live my life?
In order to encounter the living God more deeply, retreatants will “retreat” from the noise and busy-ness of Creighton and larger world by spending the weekend (Friday evening to Sunday afternoon) at the Creighton Retreat Center in Griswold amidst the sounds and sights of nature.
The Retreat will offer opportunities for shared prayer, the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist, small group conversation, and periods of silence and reflection.
