Graduate Student Summer Retreat: A Life of Grace

Jesus says, "Be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect," but how can any one of us become perfect in this life? All of us are called to holiness, but how do we make progress in the spiritual life? Join the Catholic Graduate Community on its summer retreat as we explore these questions and seek ever more intimate union with Christ. No matter where you may be on your spiritual journey, recent convert, lifetime Catholic, or someone simply curious about the Catholic faith, we invite you to join with fellow graduate students for a weekend of leisure, prayer, and devotion towards God.

Our retreat will be held at Lindenwood from 8 AM Saturday, June 10th, to 3 PM Sunday, June 11th. Graduate students (and spouses!) are all welcome. Register Online.  Email for more information.
