Loyola: A First-Year Retreat

Inspired by St. Ignatius’ own story of meeting his best friends in college, Loyola is a Catholic retreat welcoming all students in their first year at Georgetown who want to meet new friends and grow in their faith. Activities will include online Jesuit and student reflections, bonding with friends, time for personal prayer and more!

Who: First year and transfer undergraduate students

When: Oct. 2-3, 2020.

We are planning a variety of activities from Friday evening, Oct. 2 through Saturday evening, Oct. 3 including Zoom sessions with Jesuits, chaplains and student leaders – but don’t worry – we will not be on Zoom the whole time!! There will be lots of ways to connect with new friends.

Click here to register. Registration is preferred by Sunday, September 27 so that we may plan ahead, but no one will be turned away if you register after this date. Questions? Email Chaplain Michelle: siemietm@georgetown.edu.

Where: Given this retreat is online, we will meet you wherever you are! Come join the fun and meet new friends!

Frequently Asked Question:

Do I have to be Catholic to come on this retreat?

While this is a Catholic retreat, you don’t have to be Catholic to join. The community environment on all our retreats is always welcoming, reverent, loving and fun! So no matter where you are on your own faith journey, you are always welcome. We will offer opportunities for bonding with friends, reflection, and more!
