The Koinonia retreat weekend is an experience in Christian community based on the Paschal Mystery of Jesus Christ – his life, death and resurrection – designed principally for college students (undergraduate or graduate). The retreat is offered from a Catholic perspective; however, non-Catholics are welcomed as well.
Fellowship – The Greek word "Koinonia" means "fellowship." This Catholic retreat offers a chance to get to know others who take their faith seriously, but not so seriously that they forget that fellowship requires others to feel comfortable.
Fun – The retreat is filled with surprises, laughter and most of all – fun.
Food – There is no need to bring food. We will supply all the snacks, regular meals and treats.
Faith – Discussion is all student-led and given in a relaxed and caring atmosphere.
Future – Strengthen your relationship with God and fill your future with new and supportive friends.
