Most retreats are led by a team of students who diligently prepare developing all the skills needed to facilitate a transformational experience for their peers.  A major component of each retreat are witness talks, also known as life experiences, written and delivered by the team leaders.  After each talk, the participants are invited to discuss the topic further in small groups and how it relates to their lives. Throughout the retreat are prayer services connected to the retreat themes, fun, games, food and relaxation.

Each retreat addresses a different spiritual theme and may use different methods to help participants grow in their faith. Each retreat is viewed as one small piece to a puzzle and when pieced together, it creates a larger picture.

Chapman Lake Retreat Center

Chapman Lake Retreat Center

The University's Retreat Center is located approximately 30 minutes from campus on picturesque Chapman 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.
