Latinx Retreat

Since 2015 we have gathered Latinas/os from CSB,SJU, St. Thomas and St. Catherine's University for a 1 dat retreat hosted on one of the campuses.  These retreats are planned and led by students.  True to our mission the retreat is planned and celebrated in the Latinx traditioin.  The day is spent listening to inspiring talks, conversations and prayer experiences. This year's retreat will be at CSB on March 16th.

Retreatants say:

  • "Campus Ministry has done an amazing job at creating events and programs for the Latinx community that deepen our faith. It gives us a safe, familiar platform to further spiritually enrich our lives with other peers."
  • "Small groups allowed for deeper connections and opened real honest conversation."
