    Details: Fr. Kevin Burke, S.J. leads the conversation on who and how we are at Regis. If you are new to Regis and don't have a clear idea of what this "Jesuit Mission" thing is or if you are a seasoned employee who yearns for a re-connection to this Ignatian vision we share this is a great opportunity to pull away for a few hours with colleagues, enjoy a homemade, healthy lunch, and explore the richness and challenges of the mission we share. Fr. Kevin Burke, S.J. is the new Vice President for Mission at Regis. At the 2017 August Ignatian Heritage Day gathering he shared his intention to continue conversations  with the Regis Community in his first year in order to more clearly discern WITH US what our Mission really is. This Retreat in the workday is another opportunity to continue this important conversation in a prayerful and thoughtful context. The retreat is free and it is approved for Mission Leave. Seating is limited and all are welcome! Please sign up with Fredricka Brown at fbrown@regis.edu. Questions please contact Ken Phillips at kphillip@regis.edu
