Saint Paul’s Retreats!
Each year Saint Paul’s offers a variety of retreats for students that allow a chance to get off campus, meet new people, and deepen their faith in God. A retreat is what it sounds like: time to step back, reevaluate, and pursue God’s call. Some of our retreats are geared toward building community while others are specifically for you to hear the gentle voice of The Shepherd. Though each retreat is different, they all have common goals: to pursue a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and to work with others to spread His joy to the world.
Below you can find information about all of the retreats offered throughout the year and how you can sign up when registration is available. If you have further questions about retreats feel free to email our Retreats Intern, Julianna Kollross at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In order to truly retreat, one must leave their life behind in order to walk towards God. The men’s and women’s silent retreats are great opportunities for students to quiet their hearts and minds, retreat from the noise and distractions of our lives, and hear God’s voice. These retreats offer a chance for silence, stillness, and a rejuvenation of spirit. Contact Julianna Kollross at email@example.com with questions.
December 1-3 at Durward’s Glen
Busy Student Retreat
Lent is a great opportunity to step back and reflect on life and explore your deeper questions. We know that some students don’t have the time for a whole weekend retreat, so the Lenten Discipleship Retreat is designed for those with a busy schedule. The retreat takes place right here on campus and participants meet one-on-one with a peer mentor according to their schedule.
Join us for our largest retreat of the year in Green Lake, WI. Come hear amazing speakers, meet new friends, and grow in a deeper relationship with Christ. We’ll be joined by Damascus missionaries again this year who will be helping us encounter the Holy Spirit throughout the weekend.
This getaway is offered exclusively for freshmen! Students will spend a fun-filled day playing games, eating food and getting to know other Freshmen new to Madison. The fall retreat was Sept 29-30th.
Saint Paul’s Koinonia (SPK) Retreat
This retreat is so popular that it is offered twice a year! Koinonia is a Greek word for community which is what this weekend is all about; a chance to meet other students and grow in a faith-filled environment. Because of its popularity, the maximum number of spaces fill up fast.
