FYRE is an annual retreat designed specifically for first-year students, focusing on spirituality and community-building. Students spend the weekend at Camp JIM near Brainerd, Minnesota (transportation is provided) to reflect, discuss their personal faith, and participate in a series of talks and activities.
The retreat will cover such topics as maintaining a faith life in the busy college setting, having a relationship with God, relying on God, and relating with one's peers.
It is a weekend of discovery that poses the questions:
- Who am I in this transition to college?
- Who am I going to be?
- Where does God fit into my life at CSB/SJU?
Upperclassmen continuously call this retreat one of their favorite memories of their first year at SJU/CSB. The cost is $50, which includes transportation, meals, and a t-shirt. Money can be paid at SJU Campus Ministry Office in Mary 100.
