Finding God in All Things Retreat
October 28-29, 2022
St. Ignatius insisted that God is really present in all things, and this retreat explores how. Over the weekend, we build a community where God questions are on the table. Here are a few that often get discussed:
- When is it easy to find God, and what do I do about those situations and places where God seems absent?
- How do other people find God? What has their journey been like?
- What role does religion and spirituality play as I seek God?
- Does finding God in all things change me in some way?
Each Finding God retreat has its own flavor, which comes out of the unique dynamic of each student lead team. But no matter when you go, you can expect to bond over meals, experiment with new types of prayer, have fun outside, hear students’ stories, play sports/games/music, pray by candlelight, and meet people who are willing to share their questions and hear yours.
This year's theme:
Creation! This theme includes both nature and the everyday moments that create our lives. In both cases, the focus is on the here and now, and on being present. Activities will include plenty of time outdoors in a beautiful setting.
All students, both undergraduate and graduate, of the Marquette Community.
