This retreat offers students a glimpse into the profound gift of silence. It may sound intimidating, but you will be amazed by how much you appreciate time spent alone, letting God love you just as you are.

Kairos February 14-16, 2014 Kairos - God's time - gives students an opportunity to look inside themselves and at the relationships they have with others, asking them how they can live with a heart of love and service. Open to all sophomores, juniors and seniors, Kairos explores the interaction of self and community and challenges retreatants to live each day with purpose. Though it involves traditional elements of retreats (small group discussion, prayer, outdoor activities, teambuilding, etc.), Kairos is a retreat experience unlike any other, an experience which pushes and changes retreat participants beyond expectations. Held at YMCA Camp Santa Maria in Grant, CO. For more information, contact the Kairos Retreat Team in the Office of University Ministry.
