Description:

Students of all religious and non-religious backgrounds are invited to attend this off-campus weekend experience where participants will have the opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogue with other students and chaplains from a broad range of faith traditions. Student leaders and chaplains representing Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, Orthodox Christian, Hindu and Buddhist traditions will reflect on their own experiences and provide an opportunity to observe or participate in a religious practice from their tradition, such as a Jewish Shabbat dinner, reflection guided by the Jesuit Examen, guided meditation, and various forms of prayer. Presentations are followed by opportunities for dialogue, reflection and recreation. The retreat will conclude with a group service project and an ecumenical/interfaith service.

This retreat is being facilitated by the collaboration of our university chaplains, with the goal of celebrating religious diversity while building bridges across traditions. This retreat will provide students an opportunity to deepen their understanding of both the religious experiences of others and their own religious identities.
