"I wish I could lose myself and never find myself except in God!" - St. John Vianney
St. A's offers several retreats for students as an opportunity to escape the distractions of college life and grow deeper in their faith and love of God.
Alpha is a three-day weekend retreat which takes place once each semester. It is a chance to spend some time away from the craziness of college life and get to know more about yourself, deepen your relationship with God, and learn more about the awesome student community here at St. Augustine's.
"F.I.R.E."stands for Faith In Receiving the Eucharist, and as the name suggests, this is a once-yearly Eucharistic-centered weekend free from life’s distractions designed for you to personally encounter Jesus and grow in your intimacy with God.
Our prayer is that you will come to better understand why this Eucharist is the Source and Summit of our Christian faith, and that you will experience true unity with your brothers and sisters in Christ.
A Parish Evangelization Team is a group of students ages 18-25 who travel to a neighboring parish or Catholic School and host a day retreat for teens on Saturday, stay over with local parish families, and be of service wherever needed in the parish on Sunday. The teams commit to a three-week formation period leading up to the event, and spend some time afterwards processing their experience and discerning whether or not they feel called to do it again.
