Retreat opportunities are available for students at various times during the year. Students are encouraged to pause from their busy schedules and to spend time drawing closer to God and others in their lives.

Retreats are student-led and include talks, small group discussions, times for reflection, prayer, time to relax with others, have fun, and grow in their faith.

Our retreats are held at retreat centers throughout New England.

Subiaco: Becoming Your Best Self, a retreat for all Saint Anselm students, is about figuring out who you are and who you want to become. As a young man St. Benedict grew tired of a busy life in Rome and decided to dedicate the rest of his life seeking a closer connection with God. While living in a cave in Subiaco, he matured both in mind and character, in knowledge of himself and of his fellow-man. There he also began to discern which thoughts, feelings, and desires were leading him towards greater love of God, and which were distractions to his spiritual growth.

Campus RENEW

Campus RENEW offers students the opportunity to join small faith-sharing groups led by the Campus Ministers. Groups meet for about an hour on a weekly basis for Scripture reflection, discussion, prayer, or applying lessons learned to everyday life. Groups meet almost every night of the week, so there should definitely be a group that fits your schedule! All students are welcome to join in. Enjoy a quiet time of reflection, sharing, and prayer amid your busy schedule!

To learn more or register for a Renew Group email or come by the Campus Ministry Office in the Roger and Francine Jean Student Center.
