What students are saying about the retreat
"I have been on the Busy Students Retreat for three years, and I've been looking forward to this one since the last one ended. I find it to be an important part of my mid-school-year religious check up.
I love how flexible the spiritual directors are with my busy schedule. They are willing to meet almost any time morning through evening, whenever is most convenient for me. It's a very personally rewarding experience that allows me to reflect on my faith, ask questions, and grow with God.
The retreat is really what you want to make out of it, and it meets you wherever you are in life. It makes me realize that there is always time for God. Prayer is so rewarding and energizing, and I always come out of the retreat feeling like a better, more enlightened person. I'm so thankful for this retreat, and I hope other students take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to fit in some God time.
The best thing I got out of it was that I learned how to have a more intimate relationship with Jesus. I came to my spiritual director with this goal in mind, and she taught me different methods of prayer that helped me to build this relationship, and I'm forever thankful for it."
