We all need a break once in a while, right? At the Newman Center, we believe there's no better way to get away than to embark on one of the unique, rewarding retreat experiences we offer year-round. So, do something great for your faith: get away from campus for a weekend, grow in your relationship with God, make amazing new friends, reflect on your life and better understand your calling.
The New Beginnings Retreat offers first-year students the opportunity to escape from the pressures of classes, studies, and work, to spend a little time in prayer and building your relationship with God in the Catholic community at the Newman Center with other first-year students.
Saturday, Sept. 12 at 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. livestreamed from the Newman Center
This new virtual format of the retreat included three student talks and Zoom breakout rooms for small group discussion. Small groups virtually meet for further faith sharing, connecting, and closure to the retreat.
*PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19, our 2020 New Beginnings retreat WILL NOT be held as an in-person, overnight retreat.
