Connect Retreat



February 7-9, 2014

What has your faith been like? What have been your struggles? Where is God in your experiences at Marquette? How can your faith be more active in your daily life? While exploring these questions, first year students will be able to form community with others who are seeking to invite and experience God's presence in their lives.

The Connect Retreat is a great opportunity for First Year students to take time away from campus and meet a whole new circle of friends who are also in the midst of their transition into Marquette life. We’ll have time for reflection, prayer, and conversation with other 1st year students. The student Retreat Leaders are all sophomores-seniors who have experienced their own struggles and joys of the 1st year of college and are excited to share those with 1st year students.

Come find companions for your journey on a Marquette Connect Retreat!
