NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE SPRING 2014 RETREAT, APRIL 11-13, 2014.
When: Friday, April 11 - Sunday, April 13
Where: Carmelite Spiritual Center, 8433 Bailey Road, Darien IL
Who: Benedictine University (Lisle and Springfield), College of DuPage and North Central College students
The Koinonia retreat weekend is an experience in Christian community based on the Paschal Mystery of Jesus Christ – his life, death and resurrection – designed principally for college students (undergraduate or graduate). The retreat is offered from a Catholic perspective; however, non-Catholics are welcomed as well.
Fellowship – The Greek word "Koinonia" means "fellowship." This Catholic retreat offers a chance to get to know others who take their faith seriously, but not so seriously that they forget that fellowship requires others to feel comfortable.
Fun – The retreat is filled with surprises, laughter and most of all – fun.
Food – There is no need to bring food. We will supply all the snacks, regular meals and treats.
Faith – Discussion is all student-led and given in a relaxed and caring atmosphere.
Future – Strengthen your relationship with God and fill your future with new and supportive friends.
