Be Still and Rest in God: An Ignatian Silent Retreat for Undergraduate Students

All undergraduate sophomores, juniors and seniors are invited to leave the busyness of everyday life for a sacred encounter with God’s love and friendship. A team of Jesuits and chaplains will offer presentations and guided reflections, accompanied by silent time for personal prayer, opportunities for spiritual direction, and Mass. The quiet environment creates a space to rest and grow closer to God in a loving, supportive community.

We will offer two Be Still and Rest in God Silent Retreats this year – a 1-night retreat in the fall semester (Nov. 4-5) and a 2-night retreat in the spring semester (Feb. 2-4).

Who: All undergraduate sophomores, juniors and seniors

When: Nov. 4 to 5, 2023 and Feb. 2 to 4, 2024 (We will depart by bus from GU at 4pm each departure date and return to Georgetown by 5:30pm).

Where: Georgetown’s beautiful Calcagnini Center in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.

Cost: $20 (Nov. 4-5) or $40 (Feb. 2-4), including transportation, lodging and meals. Financial aid is available, email Chaplain Michelle to request financial aid.
