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, Eva Luba at email@example.com.
Graduate / Young ProfessionalS Retreat
A retreat is a great way to step away from the world and work, allowing us to return with renewed vigor and purpose. The Grad/YP retreat includes opportunities for silent prayer, group discussion, and fellowship. It will take place at Lake Waubesa Bible Camp! Email Kevin at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
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.
This is our largest retreat of the year and will happen in peaceful Green Lake, WI! Feb 10-12, 2023 over 150 Undergrads will gather for a weekend of fun, prayer, and community. It’s the perfect opportunity to get off campus to relax, play games, and grow in relationship with God and other students.
Busy Students 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.
Saint Paul’s Koinonia (SPK) Retreat
This retreat is so popular that it is offered twice a year – Fall 2022 SPK is October 14th-16th! 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. Registration opens September 25th at 10PM.
This getaway is offered exclusively for freshmen! Students will spend a $20 fun-filled day playing games, eating food and getting to know other Freshmen new to Madison. The fall retreat was Sept 23rd-24th, 2022.
