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.
