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.


Wanting to start your fall semester on the right foot? Looking for a way to meet other students in a community of friendship and faith? Join us for CONNECT!

Through CONNECT you will be introduced to all the people who make the Ragin' Cajun Catholics your favorite organization on campus. You'll make new friends and learn about all the ways to get involved.

CONNECT is August 15-17 for all returning registered UL students (Catholic or not). The retreat will be August 16th and the 17th for all incoming Freshman and new UL students!


Encounter is the ultimate fall retreat! October 27-29, all UL students are invited to spend a weekend away from the hustle of the fall semester: New friends, great talks, small groups, activities, fun, food, prayer, and rest. Few spots are left - register now!
