What is Koinonia?
The Koinonia (Greek for "fellowship") retreat builds community by bringing individuals closer to Christ through experiences of Christian witness, faith-filled encounters, discussions, and team-building activities. This student-led retreat will encourage you to reflect on your own faith life and seek a deeper relationship with God, while engaging you with peers making similar faith journeys. Throughout the two-day retreat, you have the opportunity to reflect, grow, renew, celebrate, and enjoy!
Who can attend?
All students from Benedictine University are invited to attend. Although the retreat is offered from a Catholic perspective, all students are welcome. No experience is required. We encourage repeat participants too. If God is calling you to "re-retreat," answer His call!
