In Mark 6, Jesus tells his apostles to “Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” Retreats offer an opportunity to do just that--take a break from the hectic pace of life to connect with Jesus, yourself, and your community. The Ragin' Cajun Catholics offer a number of retreats throughout the year. Dates and registration links are available below or contact Mat Ardoin, Campus Minister for more information.

Silent Retreat

This five-day silent directed retreat in Grand Coteau follows the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. Each retreatant is assigned a director to meet daily for reflection and spiritual discernment. Monday, December 12 - Thursday, December 15. Registration deadline is Monday, November 28.

Greek Retreat

Run by Greeks and for Greeks, Our Lady of Wisdom hosts its annual spring retreat exclusively for Greeks! The weekend is designed to encounter the Faith in both a personal way and communal way within your Greek chapter. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience authentic sisterhood and brotherhood through talks, prayer, fellowship, the sacraments, and fun! This Catholic retreat illuminates how life as a follower of Christ can and should coincide with life as Greek student, and all in the Greek community are welcome to attend!
