Connections Connections is a retreat for first year students, aimed at forging new relationships and being introduced to Ignatian Spirituality. The Connections retreat takes place Sept. 30 – Oct. 2 at Id-Ra-Ha-Je in Bailey, Colorado and is focused around Ignatian themed talks, small group discussion and engaging with the first year community in a very intentional way as they prepare for their Regis experience. We raise questions based around meaning, relationships and mission. For more information, contact the Connections Retreat Team in the Office of University Ministry.

Silent, Directed Retreat The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola have been a source of inspiration for the Jesuits and others for the past 500 years. 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. Participants will meet daily with a spiritual director who will help guide their prayer.

Kairos 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. Kairos is a three-day, student-led retreat that explores how God is active in a particular way through relationships and in the "stuff" of our everyday lives. Student leaders give talks to their peers, facilitate small groups, and help organize and plan the retreat. This retreat will be early in Spring Semester.
