  • Fall 2018 Retreats

    Subiaco
    November 16-18

    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 Subaico, 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.
