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.

Contemplative Retreat: Relax, Reflect, Ruminate

Rooted in our Catholic, Benedictine heritage, this retreat is open to all students, whatever your faith traditions, that we may foster discipleship through hospitality, worship, prayer, witness, and reflection so students may embrace and live out their faith.

Johnnies Retreat

A space for Johnnies to take a step back from the world and spend time with one another in prayer, reflection, and fellowship. You will explore faith and spend plenty of time in the great outdoors!

Trails Retreat

An opportunity for students to look at their CSB/SJU journey and consider how they're being prepared for the next step of life's adventure. Through shared prayer, reflection and storytelling, this  retreat will help students think about their callings and provide them with discernment practices for everyday life.
