A Campus Ministries retreat is time and space set aside as an opportunity to deepen one’s awareness of God’s Presence and to cultivate a healthy relationship with that Presence, both individually and communally. All students - graduate students, commuters, those practicing any religious tradition or none - are welcome to attend. We offer over two dozen different types of retreats. Learn more about them from these brief descriptions .

Chapman Lake Retreat Center

The University's Retreat Center is located approximately 30-minutes from campus on picturesque Chapman Lake.lake The Center, complete with dining facilities, meeting rooms and overnight guest rooms, was constructed in 1998 and expanded eight years later. In November 2006, Blessed Peter Faber Chapel (now St. Peter Faber) was dedicated, a modern chapel complete with large window views of the Lake and the beautiful surroundings.
