Retreats and Spirituality

University Ministry provides many different options for spiritual growth. One way we assist with spiritual growth is gathering as a community to grow and explore our spirituality, faith, and fellowship through retreats.


We develop retreat themes from one of the four Stritch Francsican Values.  The theme is specifically based on the the Value of the Year 

What is a Retreat?

  • A retreat is an event where a group of people withdraw from their daily lives to pray, fellowship, rest, and reflect so that they can focus on God, themselves, and one another

Why go on a Retreat?

  • ​There are many reasons to go on a retreat.  People attend retreats to: renew their spiritual life; recover from daily life; discover or understand things about themselves; learn the ways that God is moving within their lives; relax and have fun
