Retreat Ministry

The St. Pius X retreat ministry serves as an example of how we practice what we preach. The Office for Campus Ministry organizes retreats for all faculty, staff and students as an expression of our communal faith. Our retreats arise from our social ministry and play an integral role in developing our Christian educational community.

All of our retreats occur off-campus to allow our community an escape from the distractions of day-to-day life. Retreat attendance is required for all students, faculty and staff. They give our members a quiet space to share their faith and belief in God through prayer, activity and liturgy.

What is the Value of the Retreat Format?

  • Creates distance from the stresses of daily life
  • Gives time for personal reflection about our relationship to God and others
  • Gives opportunity to pray, discuss and act as a community
