Upcoming Retreats

Thank you for expressing interest in the Busy People’s Retreat, an on campus experience that takes place over a few days. The BPR is designed to meet your needs for understanding your own spirituality, regardless of your religious affiliation. It can be done any time, no matter what your schedule looks like!

How does the BPR work?
Looking for a chance to have a spiritual conversation and deeper reflections? At your convenience, you can email Brother Mike at [email protected]. For BPR, you agree to meet for a few 30 minute sessions with a Campus Minister to discuss anything related to your spirituality. You two will work some dates and times that work for you both to fulfill the program.

It is that simple and you will come away with a better sense of where you are at with your spirituality.

Thanks very much,

Bro. Mike Sheerin, FMS
Campus Minister
Hollis Hall 107, Queens campus

The Search 17 Retreat is a three-day retreat in April designed to help young adults face the questions:  “Who Am I?”  “How do I relate now with others and with my God?”  This “spiritual plunge” engages students to understand the Christian spirituality and be transformed to develop their own personal and communal prayer life.   All students are invited to participate, be inspired, and enhance their lives as well as the university community at large. Our attendance list will be made on a first come, first serve basis as space is limited.  Once the $40 registration fee is obtained, your spot will be confirmed.

The retreat takes place from Friday, April 1st to Sunday, April 3rd at the Seminary of the Immaculate Conception in Huntington, N.Y.  We look for to having you join us!
