FYRE: Community | Faith | Belong
FYRE is an annual retreat designed specifically for first-year students, focusing on spirituality and supporting them to begin building a faith community. Students spend the weekend reflecting, discussing their personal faith, and participating in a series of talks and activities.
When: Fall Semester 2023
Where: Luther Crest
Prayer in the Garden: PIG
Prayer in the Garden takes you to the Catholic Worker Farm in Lake City where our hosts
Paul and Sara Fried lead retreatants on practices and mission of the Catholic Worker farms.
Retreatants explore how to practice hospitality, welcoming the stranger, stewardship, and
care for creation by volunteering with Catholic Worker community members, and pray and
grow with one another. Weather permitting, retreatants also have the opportunity to camp
out under the stars as a part of the retreat experience.
