A retreat for grad students and young professionals that explores how God's mercy and our own can enter into the brokenness and disappointments of our lives and of the world. How God makes us His own through Mercy and how we offer our lives to God's love as Mercifully Yours.
About the Deepening Retreat
During the Spring Semester of 2003, the first Graduate Student/Young Adult Retreat was created. Since then there has been a GSYA retreat every year and the name of the retreat is Deepening. This retreat is aimed at the issues facing graduate students and young adults who have transitioned from undergraduate studies to grad school or the working world and are now exploring such faith issues as discerning careers and direction in life, relationships, solitude, prayer, community, and more. Retreatants have the opportunity to listen to and talk with community members and other retreatants who have struggled or are struggling with similar issues. Typically about 50 graduate students and young adults attend this retreat every spring. The retreat is usually in February or March and is a full weekend, Friday evening to Sunday morning. Every year a new group of people attend this retreat with exception to the retreat team who helps organize the retreat. If you are interested in attending keep an eye out for registration each early spring.
Deepening Retreat This Year
Join us for a Friday evening at the CSC that begins with a simple happy hour that will move into a talk on "how to become a person of Mercy." Then Saturday we will spend the day away at a retreat center exploring Mercy in relationships and Living mercifully in the world as a young adult, leader, and person of faith. Saturday will be enriched by prayer that is led by two Brothers from Taize, France, who will lead a beautiful Taize prayer service. Truly a Lenten gift to yourself of prayer, contemplation, and community. We invite you to journey with us . . . dates coming soon!
